Power restored to most left in dark by Superstorm Sandy
Matt PearceAlthough the Northeast is far from back to normal, officials in New York and New Jersey are nudging areas afflicted by Superstorm Sandy back to livability.
The number of customers without electricity in the region had dropped below 170,000 Sunday — far from the peak of 8.7 million after the storm's arrival two weeks ago. The bulk of those without power were in New York state, according to the U.S. Energy Department.
New York energy provider Con Edison said that almost all power had been restored that was safe to restore. But 30,000 customers in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island have so much damage that power either can't be restored or must be tested for safety.
