More than 150,000 homes and businesses in New York and New Jersey are still waiting for the lights to come back on about two weeks after the superstorm.

The Long Island Power Authority in New York still has the most customers out at about 130,000. Most of the rest are in New Jersey.

The totals don't include the tens of thousands of homes that are too damaged to have electricity turned back on. And Consolidated Edison, which serves New York City, says damaged equipment affected thousands and needs to be inspected and repaired before power comes back.

Some also lost power in last week's nor'easter.

The prolonged lack of electricity as well as dearth of information about when it will be restored has angered residents and government officials alike.
