1.9M customers still without power in NY state


ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Utility crews in the Hudson Valley continue their efforts to restore electricity service to the tens of thousands of customers still without power in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy.

Most of the outages in Mid-Hudson Valley are in Dutchess, Orange and Ulster counties, where more than 100,000 customers remain without power Wednesday morning. Sullivan County in southeast New York has another 32,000 outages.

The power situation is even worse on Long Island and in New York City and its northern suburbs, where more than 1.6 million customers have lost power from Monday's storm. In all, some 1.9 million utility customers in New York state have lost power because of Sandy.

Utility officials say they're still assessing the damage in many areas and have given no estimates on when they expect power to be restored.
