Flooded communities drying out; concerned about future storms

South Shore communities that flooded during Monday’s storm are concerned more flooding could be on the way.
Erosion caused by the storm has left Dune Road in Quogue vulnerable, according to Southampton Town Emergency Manager Ryan Murphy.
The New York Department of Environmental Conservation has asked the Army Corps of Engineers to repair erosion on Fire Island and on the South Shore.
In response, the Army Corps of Engineers wrote, “the New York District will perform an analysis of yesterday’s coastal storm event to determine if it qualifies as extraordinary, therefore potentially eligible for PL 84-99 assistance.”
