For Some, Power Slowly Being Restore as Others Wait

Port Jefferson village sees some progress.

Area residents are struggling with the clean up after Hurricane Sandy and many are still without power with days before they will see relief.

A Long Island Power Authority map shows that there are 4,540 customers without power in Port Jefferson, Port Jefferson Station, Terryville and Mount Sinai out of a total of 16,459, about 28 percent.

Residents are saying there is some improvement in certain areas.

"Power in most of Mount Sinai has been restored," said John Feinberg, a Mt. Sinai resident, in an email to Patch on Wednesday. "North of 25A never lost power. South of 25A got it back at 0100 hours today."

Feinberg reported that residents on the Coram Mt. Sinai border are still without power.

Monica Stone reported that Shore Road in Mount Sinai still is without power.

"Saw LIPA tweet that most should be restored by Nov. 10-11th," she commented on Facebook. "Won't give me specific timing on our location."

A Port Jefferson business owner said that power was coming back on, slowly.

"Looks like 112 from 347 to North Country Rd is back," she reported."Light at 347 up and running. Pathmark has lights. North on 112 (towards Port) lit up."

Although there were still places that are dark.

"7-Eleven, on the west side of the street (north of the tracks), Tara's and Napa, light at North Country, Lobster House are all still out," she said.

At the north end of Route 112, many businesses are seeing the lights come back. Boardwalk Games reported being open with power. Power was also restored to the Frigate building, and the building with Lainie's Way.

On Facebook people were listing the places that had power and some that were still waiting.

Kerin Robitsek said that Thompson Street in Port Jefferson has power.

Monica Williams reported that the lights were still out on Soundview Drive.

Andrew Stone said Shore Road in Mount Sinai still has no power.

Regina Wilcox said that she lives in the first Jefferson Woods across from Mather Hospital in Port Jefferson.

"The second part of the complex has power," she said. "The rest of us have heard that it will be another 7 - 10 days."

A business owner reported on facebook on Friday that the south side of East Main Street has power back.

Heatherwood on Piedmont dr. has power as of about 8:30-9 pm last night...along with most of the surrounding neighborhood....that pole on Jayne Blvd. is still hanging by a thread though...so for how long the area stays up is anyone's guess.

Ficus Street is still waiting patiently! LIPA arrived on Halloween to finally shut off the live wires running in the street and through the fallen tree. We're told over 7000 volts were running through those wires! Once the turned off the power and moved the wires to the grass they were gone! Another crew cut the tree down so it could be removed! Now we all wait for LIPA to come back and hook us all back up and repair all the fallen wires and tilting pole further down the block!
