HAUPPAUGE — Areas in Suffolk County are among the hardest hit during this latest nor'easter. The snow tapered off in the afternoon in the west end of Suffolk, leaving parts of the east end with up to a foot of snow. Crews cleared most of the major roadways, but the storm blew down some trees. There were power outages due to wet and heavy snow weighing down on power lines and tree branches.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone says the snow combined with the strong wind caused thousands on the east end to lose power. "We know PSEG is working to get those customers back online to restore those power outages as quickly as possible," he said.

Police say only a few car crashes happened as a result of the weather. Gov. Andrew Cuomo had road crews come from upstate to help clear the snow.

The county executive says crews will be working through the evening to keep the roads clear for drivers.
