Winter storm floods some communities on the North Shore

The first winter storm of 2024 brought some flooding to the North Shore.
In Mount Sinai, the biggest issues began around sunrise with high tide, which flooded portions of Harbor Beach Road near Cedar Beach.
There was some moderate flooding in Aquebogue but the waters began to receded just after 11 a.m.
In Downtown Riverhead, high tide pushed water over the dock, which flooded a parking lot. Police installed barricades to close those lots.
Snow also fell around noon, slightly sticking to the grass.
Residents said they had not seen the tide this high in several years, going over the dock at the river walk.
Another strong weather system will approach on Tuesday and bring along more problems for flood-prone communities.
