Lindenhurst residents worry about more flooding during high tide

Posted: Updated:

Concerns continue for some South Shore communities over another tide cycle in Lindenhurst after many streets were flooded during high tide Thursday night as the first nor'easter of the fall season swept through.

Flooding on Shore Road caused problems for residents and drivers Friday morning. The water on the road should recede more as the tide gets lower. But flooding will be a concern tonight too when it's high tide again.
