It's been more than three days since the worst of Hurricane Sandy passed through Rockville Centre and the lights are starting to come back on.
Village spokesman Jeff Kluewer confirmed late Thursday night that of the more than 70 percent of village residents who lost power, roughly 30 percent have had power restored -- leaving approximately 40 percent in the dark.
Kluewer said he is hoping that most of the village will have power by Monday night.
Along with the electric restoration progress, Kluewer said that the auxiliary police headquarters building at Mill River/Centennial Park will serve as an information center with updates and printed information for residents and the senior center will be open for residents to have both heat and power.
More details will be made available by the village later Friday afternoon.
