Less Than 800 Without Power in Hauppauge

LIPA reports that 764 Hauppauge customers remain without power two weeks after Hurricane Sandy.


Power has been restored to the majority of Hauppauge residents after Hurricane Sandy, but there are a few still lingering in the dark after two weeks as of Sunday, according to Long Island Power Authority's outage map. 

LIPA reports there are 764 power outages in Hauppauge as of noon on Sunday. In the Town of Smithtown, there are still 1,354 power outages  -  the majority being in Hauppauge. 

The utility company has 467 linemen working with 262 tree trimmers in the Town of Smithtown to restore power on Sunday.  

There are 20,220 power outages in Suffolk County and nearly 100,000 on Long Island, according to the Outage Map. 

LIPA reports crews have restored power to more than 38,000 customers in the last 24 hours and has said 99 percent of those able to have power restored will have electricity by Tuesday. 

John Valentine, Town of Smithtown's Emergency Management director, encouraged residents who may be the only house on their block without power to contact LIPA to make sure they are aware of the outage. 

"You can't assume they know everyone who is out. It's not a reasonable thing to believe. They might bring up an area, but there might be a few spotty residences that don't have power and they need to know that," Valetine told Patch on Thursday. 

Residents can report downed wire or outage to LIPA immediately at 1-800-490-0075 or 631-755-6900.
