Tempers fray as many in Northeast still without power 10 Nov 2012 Frustration with continuing power outages, travel chaos, and long lines for gasoline grew on Saturday as residents of New York's Long Island, hit hard by Superstorm Sandy, protested outside the headquarters of the local utility company. Residents took to the streets for a second day, targeting the Long Island Power Authority in Hicksville. There were still over a quarter of a million customers without power nearly two weeks after the storm. As of Friday more than 170,000 of those were on Long Island. Thousands were in temporary shelters, and in New Jersey a tent city on the edge of Monmouth Park racetrack was home to hundreds.
