Hervey said Long Island was dealt another blow yesterday with the nor?easter and there has been a lot of damage done to the electric system. An additional 120,000 outages were reported since yesterday. Hervey said LIPA needs to re-calibrate themselves today and the recent storm will set them back a few days. LIPA officials say they have about 11,000 people in the field and 8,000 line workers trying to restore Long Island. To report an outage or a downed wire, call 1-800-490-0075.
