The outages in the heaviest-hit areas reported are broken down by area:
- Setauket-East Setauket: 680

According to a LIPA outage map, a handful of customers in Poquott are once again without power, and outages in Old Field rose to 45. Brookhaven Town also reported that nearby Centereach (442) and Lake Grove (283) were hit hard.
The town said in a statement:
"In the report, LIPA indicated that they anticipate taking on additional outages as heavy snow is causing trees to fall on distribution lines. This is why customers may see some areas with restoration numbers going down and others going up. As customers call in the outage, the numbers will fluctuate. LIPA also said restoration times have been extended due to the snow and road conditions."
LIPA serves a total of 190,919 customers in the Town of Brookhaven, where the power agency said 3,283 town residents were experiencing outages as of approximately 11 p.m. Saturday.
Residents without power can make a report to LIPA by calling 800-490-0075, by text message, visiting its website at www.lipower.org, or by using its mobile app.
