Pementil, who is working 16 hour shifts, says some people have been understanding and stopped to ask her how long until their power is restored, while others have driven by yelling obscenities at her. Up and down the East Coast, the wait for power remains, with an estimated 1.38 million homes and businesses still without electricity, down from a peak of 9.6 million, and criticism of the utility companies mounting.
