« While we are closely monitoring this latest weather event, our crews are ready and willing to respond safely and as quickly as possible to restore power so customers can celebrate the holidays, » said John O’Connell, vice president of Transmission & Distribution at PSEG Long Island. “We ask our employees not to go on vacation in order to fulfill our obligation to provide customers with safe and reliable electricity regardless of extreme weather conditions. ”
Power outages could last into the weekend, the company said given the intensity of the projected storm and the lack of crews available to fix damaged cables due to the vacation.

We will take all available measures to reduce downtime and restore power safely and as quickly as possible. ”
