Yaphank, NY- Long Islanders have been scrambling for the past several days, preparing for what could have been a Category 1 hurricane, directly hitting the island. The first major hurricane to wallop Long Island since the 80’s when Hurricane Gloria left Long Island in the dark. Ahead of Hurricane Henri, PSEG-Long Island had issued a warning to customers to prepare for a potential outage of 7-10 days. Brett Levine, live from the Emergency Broadcast Center in Yaphank spoke with PSEG Long Island spokesperson Ashley Chauvin, about the response and what to expect as Long Islanders continue to ride out the storm.
