WOODBURY -

The heavy, wet snow has caused some power problems across Long Island.

As of 12:30 p.m., there were about 3,600 PSEG Long Island customers without power.  

The outages are spread across the area on both the North and South shores.

Heavy wet snow combined with blustery winds could continue to bring down trees and powerlines this morning.

To report an outage call 1-800-490-0075 or text the word "OUT" to P-S-E-G-L-I if you've already pre-registered.
