The East End Recovers From Massive Winter Snow Storm Juno

"Suffolk took it right on the chin," Governor Andrew Cuomo said about the historic winter storm. "Two feet of snow is a lot of snow, any way you slice it."

Even though emergency declarations and travel restrictions have been lifted on Long Island, the East End is still struggling with the aftermath of the first blizzard of 2015. Over two feet of snow fell in parts of Suffolk County, including Southampton Town, which was one of the hardest hit areas with approximately 29 inches of snow. As of Wednesday afternoon, several roads in the Hamptons were still not fully clear like Narrow Lane in Bridgehampton, which barely has enough room for one car to get through.

The day after the massive snowstorm, residents and local businesses were still digging out from one of the biggest snowfall Long Island has seen in years. Highway crews in both East Hampton and Southampton will continue their efforts to fully clear the roads throughout Wednesday, January 28th and Thursday, January 29th. With frigid temperatures and icy roads combining to make dangerous driving conditions, officials are still advising residents to avoid driving unless absolutely necessary.

Several schools including Montauk Public School, Ross School in East Hampton, Sagaponack Common School District, Springs School District, and Wainscott Common School District have already made the decision to remain closed yet again on Thursday.

Juno took a major toll on the East End commute with no morning rush hour Long Island Rail Road service at all to the East End on Wednesday. The service between Montauk and Speonk and Greenport and Ronkonkoma were both suspended because of large snowdrifts. LaGuardia Airport and John F Kennedy International Airport were also facing cancellations and delays on Wednesday. The Hampton Jitney faired better as they returned to their regular schedule on Wednesday, and the Hampton Luxury Liner is expected to return to their regular schedule on Thursday.
