Strong winds blowing through Long Island are creating havoc during the Friday morning commute, from power outages to downed trees.

The first day of winter has brought several disruptions to the Town of Oyster Bay.

The Long Island Power Authority is reporting more than 11,000 customers without power Island-wide, including 57 in Glen Cove, 216 in Brookville and 33 in Lattingtown.

The number of outages in Glen Cove had grown to 122 by 9:45 a.m.

The Long Island Rail Road has temporarily suspended the Oyster Bay line in both directions between Oyster Bay and Mineola because of a tree across the tracks west of Locust Valley Station.

According to LIPA's outage map, the Glen Cove outage isn't expected to be repaired until 2:30 p.m. 

Customers are asked to report downed wires at 1-800-490-0075.
