Heavy rain and wind are expected Thursday evening through Friday morning with gusts of wind of up to 60 MPH after midnight, the National Weather Service said on Wednesday.

PSEG Long Island said rain and wind could cause branches to break and wires down, which could lead to outages. Given the potential intensity of the storm and the lack of available crews from other utility companies to help due to the holidays, some outages can last until the weekend.

« 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. ”

« Due to the regional impact of the storm and the holidays, there are fewer crews from other areas available to support our restoration efforts, » he added. “We are continuing our efforts to obtain additional resources. We will take all available measures to reduce downtime and restore power safely and as quickly as possible. ”
