ALBANY - The governor's office is asking New York State's utility companies to explain how prepared they are for big storms.

That includes listing areas where the power often goes out.

Gov. Cuomo says some utility companies took way to long to restore power after Superstorm Sandy.

State officials are asking the public to share how they think utility companies responded to that storm.

There were two hearings scheduled in queens for today, but they're now cancelled because of the weather.

No new dates have been set.
