LONG ISLAND, NY - The three Jackson Energy Authority crews that left Friday to join restoration efforts in New York have arrived in Long Island.

On Sunday, JEA officials sent WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News pictures of dozens of utility trucks there, ready to assist the thousands of customers still without power in that area.

According to JEA, about 3,800 linemen are working, and another 2,000 were scheduled to arrive Sunday morning to help with restoration efforts.

JEA said their crews are assigned to the Oyster Bay area.

Crews expect to restore the majority of customers who lost power by next weekend.
