LIPA Brings in Additional Workers to Battle Sandy

LIPA is responding to power outages with workers they have brought in to assist.

Storm conditions from Sandy are expected to intensify throughout the day with heavy rain, flooding and strong winds.  The worst of the storm will be later today. While LIPA continues to restore power to the maximum extent possible, the safety of workers is a priority.

Some workers brought in have driven from as far away as Kentucky to support LIPA in its efforts to keep power on Long Island.

LIPA says they are expecting that some customers will be without power for as long as 7 to 10 days. Outages have already been reported on the East End.
