LIPA Restores Power To Thousands of West Islip Residents

Power has been restored to a majority West Islip homes and businesses as of Thursday evening, according to the Long Island Power Authority estimates.

Three days after Hurricane Sandy tore through the area, the power company estimates that less than 1,000 customers in the West Islip area are still in the dark.

That number is down from more than who lost power in Sandy's wake.

LIPA has shipped in extra repair crews to hasten the restoration process. Currently, 650,000 across Long Island are still waiting for power.
