LONG BEACH, New York - Parts of Long Beach, a seaside community on the southern shore of Long Island, were pitch black as darkness fell on Saturday night. The only light in entire neighborhoods emanated from the trucks of utility workers fixing power lines nearly two weeks after Superstorm Sandy devastated the region.

Residents of Long Beach, a city of about 33,000 on Long Island's southern barrier islands, share their fate with hundreds of thousands of people in devastated coastal communities facing a 13th night without power.

For many, that meant no hot water or heat in freezing nighttime temperatures.
