Nor'easter leaves some in Rockville Centre without power
Less than two weeks after the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy, Rockville Centre faced more damage and power outages from a Nor'easter storm which blanketed the village in snow.
According to Rockville Centre Spokesman Jeffery Kluewer, apprpximately 60 residents lost power on Wedensday between about noon and 4 p.m. due to tree branches falling into distribution lines, primarily in backyards.
"These outages were sporadic," Kluewer said, adding that many were restored by about noon on Thursday and that the rest were expected back by the evening.
This affected several thousand customers" Kluewer said, "but only for about 10 minutes until the line that shorted out was re-energized."
Most of those outages were restored by about 11 a.m and as of noon there were about 40 customers left without power. Most of those are expected to be back on line by the end of the day, Kluewer said.
