    The Long Island Power Authority is reporting more headway in reducing the number of power outages across Long Island and the Rockaways in Queens.

    The LIPA website said Thursday that fewer than 3,000 customers capable of receiving power are in the dark.

    Most of those are considered to be isolated outages across its 1.1 million customer base.

    Anger is growing at LIPA as outages stretch into a third week, and a class action lawsuit is filed against the power company and National Grid. It claims the utilities' negligence before and after Sandy borders on criminality. Greg Cergol reports.

    LIPA officials have noted some of the current outages are unrelated to storm damage. Officials say they contend with small numbers of outages under ordinary circumstances.

    There also are about 25,000 customers still affected along flood zone areas in the Rockaways in Queens and on Long Island's south shore.

    In those cases, repairs and inspections are needed before LIPA can reconnect them.
