Power mostly out, roads blocked in Smithtown

It's a tough time in Smithtown. About 39,000 of 41,000 homes are without electricity, the town's public safety buildings are running on generators and trees are down across Long Beach Road, blocking the main entrance to the Village of Nissequogue's peninsula. Residents there can't get in or out.

John Wagner, deputy director of public safety for the town of Smithtown, said LIPA called Nissequogue a high priority because its downed trees and power lines are leaving residents trapped.
