Ocean Parkway business owners demand answers after power outages

OCEAN PARKWAY - The power may be back on in Ocean Parkway but many business owners are now counting their losses.

Business owners are demanding answers from Con Ed after several power outages over the weekend and then again on Monday. One lighting storeowner says she lost $20,000 in business because the outages forced her to close for three days. A cell phone storeowner says the phone lines were down for hours and many orders didn?t get processed.

Some owners want Con Ed officials to look into the old underground lines, which they say are causing the outages. Other owners just want Con Ed to look into why the outages happened in the first place.
