HUNTINGTON - The Town of Huntington residents are experiencing a difficult time plowing and digging out from Friday's massive snowstorm.

In some parts of the town, snowdrifts as large as high as four feet continue to cause problems for people trying to leave their homes.

Some residents in East Northport told News 12 Long Island they saw plows come through the neighborhood early on Saturday morning, but have not seen any since. Many residents have taken it upon themselves to start moving the snow.
