MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - Nearly 14,000 PSEG Long Island customers remain without electricity a day after a powerful thunderstorm swept through the area.

Company President David Daly says it will likely take until Thursday for service to be fully restored for customers across Long Island and the Rockaways.

The company says the hardest hit areas are north of Jericho Turnpike, east of the Nassau border and in the Towns of Smithtown and Brookhaven.

Crews from surrounding utilities are assisting with repairs.

More than 80,000 customers lost power during Tuesday’s storm that knocked down trees and power lines across a wide swath of the north shore.
