It's been more than one week since Hurricane Sandy hit Rockville Centre and things are slowly returning to normal in the village -- save Wednesday's nor'easter.
Approximately 70 percent of RVC lost power during last week's super storm, with most power being restored by Monday.
RVC Mayor Francis Murray said at this week's village board meeting that he was happy with the way the local departments worked together.
“Our department heads and village employees worked day and night through the storm and its recovery,” Murray said. “All of our departments worked so well together that I want to thank them.”
Murray declared a state of emergency before the peak of the storm hit last Monday.
Residents have reached out to Patch with mixed feelings as to how the village handled the storm and its aftermath. Some feel the village and its departments acted as quickly as possible given the circumstances, while other feel there was a lack of communication from the village.
While some residents were in the dark for one full week, nearly 15 percent of the close to one million Long Islanders who lost power under the care of the Long Island Power Authority are still without power.
