High Winds, Flooding Possible With Weather System

4-13-2020 E-Newsletter Radar Loop Image

Forecasters are closely monitoring a weather system that is currently impacting our region. The system, which contributed to sever storms in other parts of the nation over the past 24 hours, has the potential to cause flooding and spur damaging wind gusts in excess of 65 Miles Per Hour.  


Current Advisories

As of 11:50AM the National Weather Service has issued the following advisories for Long Island:


Please note, weather advisories routinely change with changing weather conditions, so visit The National Weather Service for the most current advisories for our region.


Stay Informed

As the system moves through our area, you should monitor local weather forecasts and advisories. The National Weather Service and other local media outlets will provide you with alerts related to the storm as they are issued.


Power Outages

If you lose power, please report the outage to PSEG Long Island at (800) 490-0075 or by Texting OUT to 773454. The text message method of reporting an outage requires a one-time registration. Please visit PSEG at https://www.psegliny.com/page.cfm/CustomerService/myalerts/Outage to learn more about this option.

 

Remember: any downed wire should be treated as if it is a live electric wire. Keep people away from it and do not touch it. Any wire can become energized if it has come in contact with an electric wire somewhere along the system.


Due to COVID-19 guidelines, PSEGLI is requesting that customers remain in their homes while crews are working nearby. If customers must speak with PSEGLI crew members, they are asked to practice responsible “social distancing” and remain at least 6 feet away to ensure the health of everyone involved. 


Other Precautions

To the greatest extent possible: 

  • Keep cell phones and tablets charged so they have a full battery if the power should go out (lower screen brightness and shut down applications to preserve battery life).
  • Secure your home, close storm shutters and secure outdoor objects or bring them indoors.
