Newsday reports: The eye of the storm is expected to hit Long Island around 10am this morning.

It is about 7am. I have been watching high winds roll in since 3:30am. The wind is a noisy, low, roar. There are very few cars outside my window, which is Deer Park Avenue, and usually pretty steady traffic. Newsday reports that LIPA says 251,201  customers on Long Island are without power already, largely due to high winds.*

At 7:30am, our lights just had a big flicker.

There are more than 1,000 outages in each of Orient and Montauk.”
