As if storm-weary Long Islanders don't have enough to worry about,
Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday, meaning longer nights are
The Long Island Power Authority on Saturday said setting the clocks back an hour will have no effect on the recovery.
"The crews can work through the night," LIPA spokesman Mark Gross said.
With the power out for 462,801 LIPA customers as of Saturday
afternoon, including 6,522 in Garden City, many of the devices that automatically set, such as cable
boxes and computers, will not function, so locals should remember to
manually set as many clocks as they can.
Only Arizona, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa do not observe Daylight Saving Time.
Around the world, about 75 countries and territories have at least one location that observes Daylight Saving Time, according to TimeandDate.com. On the other hand, 164 don't observe the time change at all.
