As of 8 a.m. Sunday morning large trees were down on St. Johnland Road and Old Dock Road making parts of it impassable. LIPA is reporting that 1,242 customers are without power in Kings Park and 25,430 in the town of Smithtown.
Street lights were out in front of St. Joseph's Church and Old Dock Road. Main Street was virtually empty Sunday morning as the high winds continued.
