Only 48 residents went to bed without power Friday night, but more than double that number woke up in darkness Saturday morning.
According to the Long Island Power Authority's outage map, 105 homes lost electricity early this morning. On Friday, officials from National Grid said that those who lose power will have it restored within 24 hours.
While Commack was one of the hardest-hit towns on Long Island by snow, it weathered the storm much better than eastern Suffolk County when it came to power outages. As of 10:30, LIPA is reporting that 4,564 customers are out in the Town of Brookhaven. In comparison, 1,258 customers are without power in the Town of Smithtown.
In a press conference Saturday morning, Gov. Andrew Cuomo asked all residents to stay off of the roads.
"If you don't need to leave the house for an urgent matter, don't leave the house," he said, asking residents to leave the roads open for emergency vehicles and snow plows.
The National Weather Service reported 29.1 inches of snow on the ground in Commack, while nearby Smithtown saw 25 inches of snow. However, the windy nature of the storm has left snow drifts that may tower over 3 feet.
Upton saw the most snow, at 30.3 inches, while Huntington also recorded around 29 inches of snow.
According to the weather service, the area will remain in a blizzard watch until noon, though the storm was clearly winding down across the region Saturday morning.
