Powerline down in Saturday’s storm

A powerline pole fell due to sea rise and flooding along West Neck Road.  

Saturday night’s  storm brought on the flooding, which weakened the pole at its base. It finally came down around 9:15 p.m. Saturday.

Power went out for  several customers — at least six in Silver Beach and at least five near South Ferry, among other locations — for about 90 minutes.

PSEG was on it Sunday morning and replaced the pole,  and repairs were made.
