How about giving us updates when power will be restored to Garden City residents... Where are the LIPA trucks ??? When will trees be removed? We can't get any information from LIPA or GC town hall! No Internet or Tv either

I guess we'll be known as the 10% now (because LIPA promised 90% would be restored today.) Can we be 1%ers and 10%ers at the same time? Does not compute.

Just heard some streets in the Mott section got power back today. However, a lot of us still don't in this area. We saw the first lipa truck yesterday on our street and today we noticed some activity with lines and trees in our yard. Progress?

I really have to question LIPA's competency to direct the crews who have flown in to help. Can the state or FEMA take this over? This is ridiculous.

11pm on November 7th has come and gone. My 80 year old mother is in the Central section with no power. If LIPA could at least give somewhat accurate estimates, then we and she could plan. Instead, they feint with the 90% promise. The lack of information is almost worse than the situation since it leaves homeowners without an ability to make an informed decision.

I get a message that says they sent a crew on 11 - 5. I think they said screw it and went home. Fix this crap already! Gc should start their own generation plant.

Heard East end GC will not have power restored by this Tuesday, so not considered part of the 99% LIPA told neighbor today over the phone that they will look at our area after that. GC has small Grids so they are not a priority as it is more important to get the large grids up with many people first. We are probably looking at power restoration by Thanksgiving

We pay enough taxes and no one even knows GC has a problem. Its not on the news and people are surprised to hear we are having problems. Why can't our town officials make some noise and get things moving???
