Homeowners with electrical damage from Sandy are facing weeks of delays because of a shortage of supplies. Electricians and contractors tell News 12 Long Island they've been looking all over for necessary electrical components. A Federal Emergency Management Agency spokesperson says FEMA is aware that the counties have requested its aid, but by law, the official request must come from the state.
