Thursday/ restoring the grid

Multiple utility companies are working around the clock to restore the damage done by the storm Sandy. The Edison Electric Institute is the association of United States shareholder-owned electric power companies.  They have a web site with maps that show how the wide-spread repairs to the grid in the North-East are progressing.
