It is the second storm moving in on an already battered east coast. And let us show you the pictures tonight. There they are as the new storm was moving in. Crews struggling to help families restore power now, for the second time, and abc's meteorologist ginger zee is in garden city mortga, new jersey, right now. Reporter: People are coming up to me on these streets and telling me, this is beyond uncomfortable, it's feeling a little bit more like survival. When it comes to power, it's a case of haves and have-nots. We're the only ones. They have power. This is the only block in the whole area. We are, like, the forgotten block. Reporter: These neighbors live on just one street on long island. They all came out to talk to us because they say they need help. The wires spark every day. They spark from somewhere. You don't know what's live. Reporter: And last night, those dangerous wires were blowing again. I'm watching the wire that's hanging from my house fill up with ice and is it going to fall? Reporter: The storm caused more than just power problems. 600 flights canceled today on top of 1,600 yesterday, disrupting travel across the country. And it dumped record snow for the date, from connecticut to new jersey. It also added to the number of people who have not had power since sandy. 400,000 momers in the dark. Like nick michael and his family. They just got power back yesterday, ten days after sandy, only to lose it again. Just got it back yesterday. It's so unfair. You only get it for four to five hours, and it's out. Reporter: They just want to know when the power is back -- for good. Nobody leapts you know exactly what's happening. Reporter: New york's governor says their power company has failed them. We called long island's power authority four times today and haven't heard back.
