Where Are Power Outages in Smithtown?

Let us know what streets are still without power.

More than one week after Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast and knocked out power for nearly 1 million Long Islanders, there are still thousands of Long Island Power Authority customers in the Smithtown area in the dark.

Patch is compiling a list of exactly what parts of the area are waiting for power. Use the comments section below to post the name of a street, business or intersection you know is still without electricity, and if you've heard from LIPA yet.

(For safety reasons, do not list specific addresses just street names and cross streets.)

Friends on Cedar St in St James are still without power as are six of their eight neighbors. No new crews have been seen since the first two houses got their power back. Additionally, friends on Hillside Ave are also without any power. News from Governor Cuomo stating that LIPA is short on telephone poles only adds to the continuing outages. Calls have been made both to LIPA and Senator John Flanagan's offices.

North side of Brook Lane connecting Maple and Brooksite had power for about an hour Sat evening. Got the call from LIPA asking to confirm power was restored but it went back out. Been out since 10/29.
