NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New York state’s Moreland Commission was scheduled to hold the second of three hearings on how utilities performed before, during and after Superstorm Sandy.

The hearing was set for 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Jewish Community Center on Arthur Kill Road on Staten Island.

It was canceled due to the storm settling in on the area. No new date for the meeting has been announced.

The commission will review the actions taken by the power companies and will be able to make specific recommendations about how to reform and modernize the way power is delivered to New Yorkers.

Members of the public can testify about their experiences.
