JERSEY CITY - Residents at Port Liberte in Jersey City say they didn't expect to be without power more than two weeks after Sandy. They are also facing transportation issues to New York City, as the ferry service they use was destroyed in the storm.

Despite power being restored, hundreds of units remain in the dark and without heat because the building's generators remain flooded.

Residents who commute to New York City say they have problems getting to work, as the New York Waterway ferry they relied on was washed ashore in Sandy and they no longer have NJ Transit bus service.

A New York Waterway spokesman didn't return News 12 New Jersey's calls when asked to comment on when the power would be restored. Their website does say they're working to evaluate the damage and retrieve the ferry so it can relaunch.
