About 166 customers are without power Thursday morning — mostly in East Marion — as a storm with wind gusts of up to 41 mph swept across the East End overnight, according to the National Weather Service and power authorities.

A PSEG outage map shows 160 of those outages are in East Marion, with power expected to be restored by 5:30 p.m. A smattering of small outages have also affected Cutchogue, Mattituck and Southold, according to the data.

More than 1,800 customers in total have lost power across Suffolk County, according to PSEG.

Southold Town Highway Superintendent Vincent Orlando couldn’t be reached for comment Thursday morning.

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service said the East End will see a “brief respite” in the rain this morning, with stormy conditions returning by late morning and into the early afternoon. The wind and rain is expected to taper off by Friday morning.
