Most Power Restored in Deer Park, N. Babylon

Homes and businesses are returning to normal five days after Hurricane Sandy.

Five days after Hurricane Sandy, residents in Deer Park and North Babylon are seeing the light.

By Friday morning, only about 14 percent of Deer Park and North Babylon was still without power. That's a marked improvement from Thursday when nearly 60 percent of Deer Park was still in the dark, and 25 percent in North Babylon.

Shortly after Sandy hit New Jersey on Monday, nearly 90-percent of Long Island was without power. By Friday morning, that number was down to about 45 percent.

Crews began arriving Wednesday afternoon to help the Long Island Power Authority restore service to customers still without it.

The company's restoration estimate of seven to 10 days has not changed, chief operating officer Michael Hervey said, though the speed of the restoration will depend - in part - on the number of personnel LIPA can deploy.

All of Osceola Ave is without power since early evening Monday; areas of Mohawk, Cayuga, and Villa Avenues are without power. It appears this information is not reflected on LIPA's outage map.
