BOSTON — The cleanup began Tuesday morning in the aftermath of Sandy, which brought flooding to the state’s southern coast and knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of Massachusetts customers. Utility crews were busy trying to keep up as the state recovered from one of the biggest storms to ever hit the East Coast.

Lt. Gov. Timothy Murray joined WBUR’s Morning Edition to discuss the recovery efforts.

    My apartment building, located near Porter Sq.,Cambridge.  During most storm outages, power has often been restored to half the apartment unit. ie kitchen and lvg. room.  Yesterday power failed in the whole unit and again only partially restored.  In spite of many calls, emails, from me and the building mgr., we are still w/o power OR explanation.
