Long Island Storm Aftermath of 2010

As I drove around the day after the storm, I was amazed to see how 1 home was untouched, and another home had trees on top of the roof.

Some blocks were closed due to power lines being down. LIPA stated they ran out of transformers. Imagine that? This past Tuesday there were still 20,000 LIPA customers without power.

Here are some photos of what the storm left behind....

Corner of Grand Avenue & Muncy in Lindenhurst, NY - Most stops signs were untouched but this one.

The rest of the pictures are from our property.

Jackie, That storn did more damage than I ever would have expected....I hope you kept your power!  I had to get to my mothers who lost hers so she was't in a dark house.And it took some people 5 days to get theirs back.

Hi Toula, that was nothing! A lot of homeowners lost siding, roof tiles, trees through their roofs. Horrible!

Hi Carole, We had our power. I can't believe that your Mom and tens of thousands of other homeowners lost power for that long!

Hi Michael, It was unreal. Some neighborhoods looked like a war-zone and others were fine. Wacky weather for sure!

It is always so sad to see larger trees damaged and uprooted, really changes the street's landscape.
