Today November 3rd LIPA took a step backwards in the restoration effort. 2,037 homes lost power. TheHuntingtonian was out around the whole town delivering our Election Edition to over 50 businesses. Some were open and some were not. Usually by this time into a storm the commercial areas and our businesses have been 100% restored, that is not the case and we are 6 days after Sandy. The gas station lines in all of our town were longer then in the 1970’s during the rationing with odd/even days. Back then gas was 23 cents a gallon and because of many explosive problems in the middle east gas doubled to 50 cents a gallon and rationing had to occur. Does that sound familiar? See some pictures for gas lines today and LIPA’s numbers.



























We spoke with this gentlemen, he told us “I have been online since 8am this morning. I filled a couple of gallons for my generator. I live down in Huntington Bay and I am very thankful I have a generator as I would not have any heat or power.” It was 10:30 when we spoke to him. This was the scene all over town today.
