The South Shore of Long Island didn’t see any flooding from the storm Saturday, but steady rain continued for hours and the winds were whipping at times in Lindenhurst and Amityville.
In the Town of Hempstead, Supervisor Don Clavin met with News 12 Long Island at the town’s highway yard in Roosevelt. He said preparations for the storm included clearing storm drains.
A word of advice from Clavin to residents: “If you can stay off the roads, it’s going to be a little dangerous, I’m always afraid of black ice. These are the temps that make me nervous. Rain right around the freezing mark...” He said if residents can wait to go out until Sunday afternoon, that would be best.
