While LIPA was promising Sunday to work toward restoring power as quickly as it could, Plainview residents were hoping for the best and finding things to do. And they may need to keep busy because the restoration of power could take a while.
LIPA is reporting no change in the number of Plainview residents without power.
LIPA said Sunday night that while it continues to make progress in restoring service, it does "not know at this point when everyone will have power back on. It is very likely that many customers will be without power for several days. We understand your frustration and will communicate new information as soon as it becomes available."
LIPA said that at the height of the storm, about 500,000 customers were without power. As of 8:30 p.m. Sunday, 82,000 (16%) customers had had their power returned.
