About 840 customers in Mineola are still without power as of 12 p.m. Monday afternoon after Hurricane Sandy barreled through Long Island according to LIPA figures.
The utility changed its outage map following numerous reports of erroneous outage reporting, in many cases the number of outages exceeding the number of people served. The new map also does not show the locations of crews in the areas.
According to LIPA, a total of 837 customers in Mineola were still without electricity, down from 4,356 this past weekend. In Williston Park 1,804 are powerless, down from 4,954. East Williston has 263, down from 1,796 while 183 homes in Albertson are without electricity, an increase of three.
