LINDENHURST - Some residents in Lindenhurst are being forced to tough out the sub-freezing temperatures and winds in their homes months after sustaining damage from Hurricane Sandy.

Gary Nankervis says his home on Venetian Boulevard has a boiler, but no baseboard heating following Sandy, leaving him dependent on a space heater and plenty of warm clothing.

“It would make things a lot easier if we got some heat in the place,” says Nankervis.

Nankervis says that he expects it to only get colder this winter, but that he’ll persevere until heat is restored in his home.
