Con Edison: Power restored to 80% of customers hit by Sandy

Nearly a week after Superstorm Sandy whipped the greater New York City area, about 180,00 customers still don't have electricity, Con Edison said late Sunday.  At the peak of the outage, an estimated 950,000 customers were affected in New York's five boroughs - Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island and the Bronx - and Westchester County, the utility said.

But even with the progress, many residents are increasingly frustrated, especially in Westchester, where 80,000 are still in the dark.

The company's Twitter feed bears the brunt of the criticism.

Con Edison says it expects to have the "vast majority" of the power restored by next weekend.
