FREEPORT - The debris left behind by Hurricane Sandy is causing dangerous boating conditions.

Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray is part of Project Splash, a massive cleanup devoted to collecting debris from Long Island's waterways. Murray says the Town of Hempstead has amassed over 800 tons of debris since Hurricane Sandy.

Murray says there are still thousands of tons of debris floating in waterways. She urges boaters to be extra careful this boating season and report any findings of debris in the water.
