About 120,000 homes and businesses in New York and New Jersey are still waiting for power come back on after superstorm Sandy swept through the area two weeks ago, followed by a nor’easter. The Long Island Power Authority in New York still has the most customers out at about 100,000 as of Monday morning . Most of the rest are in New Jersey. The totals don’t include the tens of thousands of homes that are too damaged to have electricity turned back on. And Consolidated Edison, which serves New York City, says damaged equipment affected thousands and needs to be inspected and repaired before power comes back.
