Residents of Hoboken, New Jersey huddle under a tent. Here they can charge their cell phones, check emails and are provided with food and water. The shelter was set up by utility company PSE&G - the state's main power supplier. In the wake of Sandy, most of Hoboken still has no power, and officials say it could still be another week before electricity is back. But here residents are upbeat. (SOUNDBITE) (English) HOBOKEN RESIDENT, KATHY ZAVARTKAY, SAYING: "It's wonderful. People have been so great, like tonight there's...they have hot water for tea, snacks, soup, it looks like Carlo's Bakery came around to bring pastries, so it's been awesome. There's a lot of information for people who need it, so it's very wonderful." (SOUNDBITE) (English) HOBOKEN RESIDENT, HOVIE FORMAN, SAYING: "Unfortunately now Sandy devastated Hoboken, but the people now, I think, learned to grow together." In all of New Jersey, PSE&G reported that over 600,000 people were still without lights, even after power had been restored to a million others.
