Many stations are running out. It could be days before there are wholesale deliveries to the local gas stations. Conserve as best you can.

Annie, if you can't reach your relative over Facebook, email, cellphone, landline, etc., you can contact the police department to request a welfare check if you are really worried. (631) 728-3400.

WHEN IS LIPA PLANNING, IF EVER, TO SHOW A PRESENCE IN TUCKAHOE. AND WHEN DOES "DAMAGE ASSESSMENT" END AND RESTORATION OF POWER BEGIN? WHEN FINALLY A SPOKESCLONE WAS REACHED SHE SAID "IT COULD BE AS LONG AS A MONTH BEFORE POWER IS RESTORED."
