NEW YORK CITY-A Newport native currently working in a New
York City hospital remains without power following Monday night's arrival of
Ryan Hill, a fourth-year medical student at Lincoln
Memorial University's Debusk College of Osteopathic Medicine, has been in New
York for about five weeks working at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx as part
of their trauma team.
In a telephone interview Friday morning, Hill, who lives
in Chinatown, said he and his neighbors still have no power. "We do have
water and gas," said Hill, "and are able to cook."
He hasn't returned to work since the storm struck Monday.
"We lost power at 8:30 Monday night," said Hill, "during the
height of the storm."
"Most of the people who live in my building are
Chinese," he added, "and when the we lost power, I could hear a big
roar in Chinese, but couldn't understand what they were saying."
