The storm that hit Long Island Monday caused all sorts of problems, in addition to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
There were downed trees and wires in the Hicksville area, and a tree fell on a home in Coram. A tree fell on top of a car in Hicksville as well.
Winds ripped off the side of a building in East Farmingdale with four people inside at the time. No one was injured.
PSEG Long Island reports thousands of customers on Long Island were without power.
The utility company says it brought in several hundred workers from out-of-state utilities to help. The company estimated it could be Monday evening, if not Tuesday, when the power returns for some customers.
PSEG says it knows that many people are working from home right now, and it asks the community for patience if the lights go out.
