A neighborhood in Levittown has fully recovered one year since the series of tornados ripped through Long Island, except for one house on the block.
Homeowners around the neighborhood told News 12 Long Island one house on Clover Lane is still in need of repair.
The house has a hole in the roof after a tree landed on it. Parts of the tree remain on and inside of the house.
News 12 Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Meredith Garofalo says the historic event marked the first ever tornado recording in the month of November. It was also an all-time daily record of six tornadoes to hit Long Island that day.
A neighbor told News 12 Long Island the home was vacant when the tornado knocked the huge tree down and that the owner had just fixed it up before he sold it.
According to county records, the home was sold in April to an unknown owner.
Homeowners said it is unsafe to leave the house as it is and police have been called several times when children have been inside.
The Town of Hempstead left a note on the fence saying a structural survey will be done on Thursday afternoon.
