WOODBURY - ? The Long Island Power Authority is bracing for major power outages across Long Island due to Sandy.

Tropical Storm Irene left more than 500,000 customers in the dark last year, and LIPA officials think outages from Sandy could be even worse.

LIPA warns you should plan for being without power up to seven to 10 days.

Crews spent the weekend trimming trees.

If you are in the dark let LIPA know by calling 1-800-490-0075. LIPA outage map
