Long Island, NY - March 13, 2018 - PSEG Long Island has released an important update regarding the winter storm that is affecting the New York region today.
  • PSEG Long Island is reporting about 330 of its approximately 1.1 million customers across Long Island and the Rockaways are currently without service.
  • As of 5:15 a.m., the utility has restored service to 997 of the more than 1,227 customers affected overnight by the storm.
  • A full complement of personnel is on hand to deal with any outages caused by the severe weather. Contractors, including tree crews, will also be available to assist the utility’s own skilled workforce if necessary.
  • Crews will continue to work throughout the day to respond to outages as safely and as quickly as possible.
  • While snow normally doesn’t pose a serious problem, high winds and heavy snow or ice on lines and trees can increase the possibility of downed wires and power outages. These conditions also make it difficult for our crews to get around.
  • Our goal, always, is to restore power as quickly and safely as possible. We ask our customers for a fair amount of patience and to know we will be there just as soon as it is safe.
