Contaminated water, no power in Long Beach

LONG BEACH, N.Y. (AP) -

In Long Beach, Long Island, the city's water is contaminated and the electricity is out.

Several dozen people gathered Wednesday at a free cell phone charging station outside a closed supermarket.

One of the shell-shocked residents recalled how he parked on higher ground, thinking his car was safe. It was filled with water and ruined.

Officials said the city is not safe to live in and anyone left must evacuate.
