Shirley still plagued by pond-sized puddles
Three weeks after a late March nor'easter soaked Long Island, some communities have yet to dry out.
Residents in Shirley are still coping with puddles the size of ponds. Some residents, such as Maria Aloia, say they're worried about algae, mold and mosquitoes because of all the standing water in their area.
Aloia says she's called the Town of Brookhaven several times to complain, but nothing has been done to clean up the flooding.
Officials say the water is coming from people pumping out basements and illegally dumping it on the street. However, officials promise to pump out the street and clear the drains.
