It's been a week since Hurricane Sandy ravaged the east coast, and more than 100 people were killed and millions of homes lost power. As temperatures dip into the thirties, nearly a million New Jersey residents still have no electricity.

Utility workers from around the country have been flown in to assist in the recovery effort, including Southern California Edison which sent some workers to the town of Ramsey in Bergen County, New Jersey.
