LIVE OUTAGE UPDATES: Outages Jump Above 6600 as Ice, Snow Knocks Out Power

Utility restoring power across the area as second storm of the week hits Long Island.

UPDATED, 11:25 a.m. – A second icy storm in just one week caused scattered power outages across Long Island on Wednesday, with more than 6,600 customers reported to be without power by utility PSEG-LI.

Wednesday's storm dumped snow on the region overnight, but began to change to an icy drizzle by morning. That heavy snow on tree branches, coupled with the ice, could cause trees to snap.

The following breakdown by municipality is available on PSEG-LI's outage map.

BABYLON - 207
BROOKHAVEN - 11
EAST HAMPTON - 7
HUNTINGTON - 547
ISLIP - 368
SMITHTOWN - 310
SOUTHOLD - 216

I'm in EH and, pardon me for saying, I don't really care about western Suffolk and Nassau County. This new patch set up is pretty frustrating considering how little the websites for local papers hardly update.

My experience with PSEG today. I lost power this morning at around 7:30am - I reported the outage online and called - they stated that they were aware of outage and a crew was assigned, estimated time of restoration of power was 10:30am. The power was back on at 10:15am - I got a call from PSEG shortly after to confirm power was on. First impression of them during an 'emergency' - I'm impressed with their ability to do what they should. It's a pretty far cry from my last 'emergency' experience with LIPA...

Although the response seems timely for PSE&G...this was no hurricane Sandy...I'm holding my official opinion of the new power company until they have to perform and respond under extreme storm circumstances as the likes of a NorEeaster or Hurricane Sandy...which I hope we never see again!
