Update: A Long Islander has started an online petition to hold LIPA accountable. To view my blog post about this, please go to longisland.about.com. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo is demanding accountability from all of New York State's utility companies and he is threatening their future rights to operate in NYS if they don't cooperate and speed up the process of restoring power to all customers.
As of 9:20 p.m. on Saturday, November 3, 2012, there are still over 450,000 LIPA customers who are without power. What's your opinion of the way LIPA is handling this? Do you think that they are doing all they can, or is it inexcusable that hundreds of thousands of Long Islanders are still without electricity and heat as the weather gets colder and colder?
