The information - which was posted Thursday, November 8, and shared with Lindenhurst Patch by Deputy Mayor Kevin McCaffrey - related to the mandatory electrical inspections announced on Tuesday by the Village, and by the Town of Babylon, along with other crucial Town updates.
(Other Babylon Town post-Sandy updates could be found on the Town's website here.)
This latest information provided by the Village also included details about the text messaging update service the Village began this week to keep residents updated in the aftermath of Sandy.
Tuesday's update also included information for National Grid gas customers, and Mayor Tom Brennan also told Patch on late Wednesday afternoon, "People are also starting to get their gas back there."
The mayor also said LIPA's been South of Montauk, to various houses, and the no-cost, but mandatory electrical inspections there have begun.
Meanwhile Thursday's information read on the website here as follows:
"Electrical inspectors have begun doing electrical inspections in areas South of Montauk Highway. The inspections are at no cost to residents.
"The inspectors are coming into homes to assess the circuit panel to determine if it's safe for LIPA to turn the power back on.
"LIPA will begin to attempt to isolate those grids and turn power back in those areas after inspections are completed.
"To be prepared for the inspector please turn off the main breaker and all the other breakers in the electrical panel.
"If you aren't home at the time of the inspection, then a card will be left for you. Please contact the Village's Building Department at 631-957-7510 to schedule the inspection.
"On Wednesday, November 7, the inspectors began the inspections on Sixth, Seventh and Ninth Streets, starting from Montauk Highway down to the Great South Bay.
"On Thursday, November 8, inspections are scheduled for Fourth and Fifth Streets and Broadway.
"The Village is working closely with the inspectors, and expect to be able to communicate the completed areas and those scheduled for completion the following day.
"This information is available on our website, www.villageoflindenhurst.com, and via our text message alert system by texting 'VOL' to 411247."
