FREEPORT - Residents in Freeport are without heat and hot water due to gas line damage from Sandy.

Homeowners on Nassau Avenue say their gas lines froze from salt water damage after Hurricane Sandy.

Lynn Berndt says she's been calling National Grid to repair her service since January. Crews finally showed up today after she contacted both Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office and News 12 Long Island.

National Grid officials say they're laying 1,700 feet of new gas pipes and replacing mains for more than 30 homes. Spokeswoman Karen Young says even more gas lines may have to be replaced.
