In Suffolk County, 13,437 of PSEG’s 638,022 customers were without power, while 16,297 of its 488,488 Nassau County customers were still reporting outages.

PSEG officials said that “the damage to many of these circuits is extensive, and as these individual damage spots are assessed, estimated restoration times will be refined.”

"PSEG Long Island took on an additional 800 workers today and we now have more than 6,000 lineworkers, tree trimmers and other personnel are working around the clock, in 16-hour shifts, until every customer is restored."
