Long Islanders dig out following blizzard

WOODBURY - Now that the Blizzard of 2010 has wrapped, residents all across Long Island have started digging out from underneath the 10 to 20 inches of snow the storm brought.

Heavy winds, which at times gusted at about 70 mph, meant that the snow accumulation varied widely across the Island. The wind also brought down power lines, knocking out power to thousands of residents, mostly in Suffolk County.

Public transportation was snarled all across the Island, with more than 1,000 flights canceled, train services suspended and buses that got stuck in the wet, heavy snow.

Police say many cars spun out, got stuck or crashed on Long Island?s roadways.

Some towns also declared snow emergencies to keep drivers off the streets while plows cleared them.
