PSEG Long Island: Storm Update—Oct. 18 2019 4 p.m. ET

(Uniondale, NY – Oct. 18, 2019) — As the storm recovery is completed, PSEG Long Island has closed its temporary outreach centers at the Shoprite on Nesconset Highway in Jefferson Station and at Oakwood Park in Huntington Station.

  • Customer offices are available to customers who need to charge their devices will remain open until 5 p.m., except for Far Rockaway, which closed at 4 p.m.
  • Within 48 hours, PSEG Long Island restored service to nearly 100 percent of more than 73,000 customers affected by the storm on Wednesday and Thursday. The remaining customers will be restored by midnight.
  • The online Outage Map continues to update with new outages that are unrelated to the storm. The Outage Map statistics will continue to diverge from the number of customers affected by the storm, which PSEG Long Island tracks separately.
  • Our crews will continue to work nonstop until all of our customers have power. The company’s goal always is to restore power safely and as quickly as possible. We know being without electricity for any length of time is a hardship and we thank our customers for their patience as we finish working through this extreme damage to restore power.
  • By the end of the storm restoration, vegetation management personnel and tree trim crews will have removed a total of 1,206 trees and large branches downed by the storm.
