Long Island, NY - February 3rd, 2014 - PSEG Long Island is prepared for yet another winter storm expected to bring accumulating snow to Long Island and the Rockaways throughout today.
This type of weather has the potential to cause power outages. PSEG Long Island has a full contingency of crews, tree trimmers, and support personnel to address any outages.
The potential heavy snow increases the possibility of downed wires and associated power outages. Cars striking utility poles can also cause wires to come down.

If you have specific information regarding damage to wires, transformers or poles, we ask that you stay on the line to speak with a representative to provide that information.
Customers with a handheld device can also report power outages by texting “OUT” to PSEGLI (773454). You will receive confirmation that your outage has been submitted and will begin receiving ongoing updates as the status of your outage changes.
