Monday’s storm knocked out power to communities across Long Island, including several neighborhoods in Huntington.
The town of Huntington said tree crews have been dispatched and will be working throughout the day. The Highway Department also reported that seven workers have been diagnosed with the coronavirus.
From Lloyd Harbor to Commack, outages were reported. PSEG-LI said that 5,272 of its approximately 1.1 million customers across Long Island and the Rockaways are currently without service.
Because the storm has hit such a wide area of the East Coast, the utility said it was not likely to receive its usual mutual aid from out-of-state crews. “While we have adjusted our emergency response plan accordingly, some customers may experience slightly longer outages as a result,” PSEG-LI said.
