Rain, Wind Cause Flooding, Some Outages

About 35 customers were without power as a result of  the nor’easter, PSEG-LI reported Saturday afternoon.

Several streets around Huntington were flooded or partially shut by water or broken tree limbs.

The Lloyd Harbor causeway was closed to non-local traffic, with vehicles turning around the entrance to Lloyd Neck beach, where the parking lot was completely under water. West Shore Road and other streets were also flooded.

  • As of 2  p.m., PSEG Long Island reported that approximately 4,747 of its roughly 1.1 million customers across Long Island and the Rockaways are without service.
    • Since midnight, the utility has restored service to more than 20,700 customers affected by the nor’easter.
  • Electric service crews will continue to respond to outages and repair service as safely and as quickly as possible.
    • High winds and heavy rain can increase the potential of downed wires and power outages.
    • These conditions can also make it difficult for crews to do their work. PSEG Long Island’s goal is always to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.
    • The utility appreciates customers’ patience in understanding that crews are working as swiftly as possible, with safety in mind.
  • Downed wires should always be considered “live.”
    • Do not approach or drive over a downed line and do not touch anything that is in contact with a downed wire.
    • To report a downed wire call PSEG Long Island’s 24-hour Electric Service number: 800-490-0075.
