Fear of erosion from Nor'easter hangs over LI

Long Island?s shores are taking a beating as a fall Nor?easter blamed on Tropical Storm Ida hits New York.

Remnants of the storm are set to dump fierce rains and winds up and down the East Coast over the next couple of days.

Parks officials and residents in flood-prone areas of the north and south shores are paying particular attention to flooding, erosion and the tides. The Lindenhurst Fire Department says extra volunteers on are standby.

George Gorman of the state parks department says he?s concerned the storm will linger, bringing more erosion with each high tide.
