HUNTINGTON STATION - In an effort to help Huntington Station residents who have been without power for days, Island Harvest brought its mobile food truck to Manorfield Park, handing out bags of non-perishable food.

Susan Reilly, of Huntington Station, picked up a bag of groceries today after she says she was forced to throw everything out of her refrigerator and freezer when she lost power.

Island Harvest says today's food distribution event was only for Huntington Station residents, but its truck will be visiting other communities tomorrow.

Meanwhile, the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department was distributing free ice tonight at Smithtown Town Hall. Residents can also pick up ice at a correctional facility in Riverhead.

People who would like to take a hot shower can do so at North Woodmere Park from 9 a.m.-11 a.m., and from 7 p.m.- 9 p.m. Hot water is also available at Cantiague Park in Hicksville from 8 a.m.-10 a.m., and from 6 p.m.-8 p.m.

The facilities at Mitchell Athletic Complex in Uniondale are open to residents from 7 a.m.- 9 p.m.
