LONG BEACH - Long Beach was hit hard by Sandy. Now, responders and city officials are working to evacuate those who chose to stay in the area.

Most of the city was left in the dark, and there is a 'do not consume the water' order in effect.

Residents who are not in a life-threatening situation should not call 911 to be rescued. They should wait on the streets, if safe, for buses to pick them up and bring them to safety.
