The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) reported that the nearly 175 customers who were without power near Demott Avenue and North Long Beach Road early Monday morning have had their power restored.
There are currently 212,602 outages throughout Long Island.
In a statement released Sunday, LIPA told customers to expect heavy rain, flooding and winds in excess of 50 miles per hour through the night that are likely to cause trees and branches to pull down power lines. The company urged customers to "prepare and plan for power outages, which based on the current track could last between 7 to 10 days."
To report an outage to LIPA, call 1-800-490-0075 or text 'REG' to 695472 (myLIPA) and then 'OUT.' For more important emergency contacts, tips and links, click here.
