Hurricane Sandy, which made landfall along the New Jersey shore, left parts of the state and the surrounding area without power including much of lower Manhattan south of 34th Street.

    Con Edison, New York's power company, said Thursday morning that they expected power to be restored to most of Manhattan by Friday or Saturday. The good news comes on the heels of the announcement that power has already been restored to 225,000 customers, including some in lower Manhattan, although there are still 667,000 customers without power in the city as a whole. Meanwhile, the Long Island Power Authority said there are still 750,000 without power in the suburban Nassau and Suffolk counties, which Gov. Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday had suffered the most power damage.
