Earlier on Wednesday, Town Supervisor Bill Wilkinson said he was concerned about the nor'easter's impact on the power lines. But, he said, "I'm thankful that LIPA is still here," referring to the staging area the Long Island Power Authority set up at the East Hampton Airport last week. "The immediacy of LIPA being within our town, as a staging area, is again extremely beneficial."
