Suffolk County Storm Status Update

10:00 AM

 

GAS

Gas supply was disrupted in the aftermath of the storm.   The state and federal government have worked diligently to restore infrastructure and gas supplies should return to normal levels shortly.

The County has ordered gas station owners to limit customers to fill just one tank of gas per visit and for those customers without power, up to an additional 10 gallons of gas permitted per visit until further notice.

Police officers have been dispatched to gas stations to post signs regarding the order.

The County is advising residents to conserve gas throughout the weekend by staying home or remaining local. 

The County has restricted gas use at County facilities to only essential services and personnel.

Thank you for your cooperation.
