LONG BEACH - The mandatory evacuation of the City of Long Beach has been lifted.

Long Beach is slowly making a recovery two weeks after Superstorm Sandy battered the Island. After 15 days of darkness, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) has restored power to patches of the community. The post office, supermarkets and other businesses were finally able to reopen.

The city's water and sewage system was also restored to working order. On Tuesday, Long Beach students finally returned to school for the first time since the storm hit.

Limited service has also been restored on the Long Island Rail Road's Long Beach branch.
