NEW YORK CITY-A Newport native currently working in a New York City hospital remains without power following Monday night's arrival of Hurricane Sandy.

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."
