RELATED: LIPA: Customers Should Prepare For Possibility of Extended Outages

Original story: Depending on the types of repairs that need to be done, it could be some time before many eastern Southamptown Town residents and businesses see their power restored.

The Long Island Power Authority said Monday, "Due to the high sustained wind speeds and localized flooding, overhead line work will be delayed for long periods of time until conditions once again become safe for crews, which based on the current weather forecast will be Tuesday morning."

LIPA said that it will continue to restore power as fast as possible, but that the safety of the public and its workforce is its number one priority. "Ground work restoration will continue as conditions allow."

As of 11:05 p.m. Monday, the number of affected LIPA customers in Southampton Town east of the Shinnecock Canal stood at:

  • Water Mill: 1,146
  • North Sea: 479
  • Shinnecock Hills/Tuckahoe: 3,747
  • Noyac: 2,091
  • North Haven: 551
  • Sag Harbor: 1,023
  • Bridgehampton: 1,477
  • Southampton: 1,781

What is flood status of houses on Peconic Bay near Cold Spring Pond?

As of call to LIPA this morning, and miraculously answered, "it could be as long as a month before power is restored". Think about that as frost comes in. One could have hoped that this storm would have blown away empty dried out husks like "Christie Nicolle" above who use any and all situations to press her stupid politics.
