Power outage hits Southampton Village

Jun 26, 2009 7:18 PM

Nearly 500 residents of Southampton Village lost power on Wednesday afternoon after a utility pole was damaged, a Long Island Power Authority spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

The damaged pole was located on the corner of Prospect Street and North Sea Road in Southampton, according to Elizabeth Flagler, a spokeswoman for the utility company. She said that the top of a high voltage primary “burned clear,” and was likely damaged as a result of recent rainstorms.

A total of 458 customers were affected for 19 minutes, and 33 customers were affected for six minutes, she said.

Elite? the majority of the people that live in the village of Southampton go to work everyday, just like the people who live in the hamlet of Hampton Bays and I am pretty sure that not to many of them have Central AC, but thier electric bill goes up every summer just like everyone elses.
