From the NY Post:
About 1,000 more Queens households than usual still had no landline phone service 10 days after storms tore through the borough, officials said yesterday.
Verizon estimated that 2,000 Queens customers had no working landlines. That's about double its normal number of outages.
The officials attributed the delay to downed trees and phone lines still hampering restoration.
Verizon normally has 1,000 landlines down in Queens? Sheesh...
