WOODBURY - The Nassau County Red Cross reached out to Long Island residents in need of assistance following the blizzard Monday.

Red Cross spokesman Sam Kille says Sunday night they helped three dozen passengers stranded at the Hicksville train station. He says the Red Cross provided food, water and blankets to keep travelers safe and warm.

Kille also suggests that residents pack an emergency kit before traveling during winter weather. He says residents should pack a snow shovel, booster cables, water, snacks and blankets just in case your car gets stuck in the snow.
