The Long Island Power Authority is reporting 236 outages in Farmingville as of 9 p.m. Friday, according to information on the utility’s website.
It was unclear when power would be restored to local residents in the area.
On Friday, National Grid President John Bruckner said as many as 100,000 residents across Long island could lose power as a strong winter storm moved north.
He said the company has 700 high-voltage lineman and 250 tree-trimmers ready to act after the storm. In addition National Grid is upping the number of call-center personnel to provide better communication during and after the storm, Bruckner said.
