AMITYVILLE - The South Shore was slammed with flooding during the two-part snowstorm that hit Long Island.

People along the Great South Bay in Amityville say their streets have been flooding more often since Superstorm Sandy hit in October. Every time there's a storm or a high tide, residents of Norman Avenue say they can't even get out of their own driveways.

Some Long Islanders say they fear Mother Nature has changed things up since Sandy, bringing more high tides and increased flooding.
