Nassau County's South Shore just dried out from Tuesday night’s storm, and they’re preparing for more bad weather.
At Jones Beach, crews repaired a protective sand wall, meant to keep floodwaters away from the boardwalk.
In Freeport, Iris Balram is still pumping water out of her basement, hoping the next storm doesn’t bring flooding.
“Right now, we’re kind of getting scared again because it’s said to have a lot of wind,” Balram said.
New York Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Basil Seggos says the state is tracking beach erosion, while working with local leaders.
The governor declared a state of emergency for western New York ahead of the weekend storm. No state of emergency was issued for Long Island.
