BABYLON - Residents in the Village of Babylon are still dealing with the effects of a power surge that occurred back on July 8.

The surge affected homes south of Railroad Avenue, including the areas of Argyle Park and Fredrick Shores.

Affected residents say they lost central air conditioning units, televisions, microwaves and other electrical items due to the surge. Some neighbors tell News 12 that they suffered hundreds of dollars in damages.

LIPA tells News 12 that it will have answers for the affected customers as soon as it completes an internal company review, which is expected soon.
