NJ, Long Island, and around NYC are VERY BAD when it comes to power. My in-laws have been told they won't have power for another 7-10 days. They live just outside of NYC in NJ.
If it's someone from the Jersey Shore, they could be out for a very considerable time, as it's a complete mess down there.
