Shelters and warming centers across the East End have closed with the worst weather from Hurricane Sandy and the nor'easter which followed over.
There are still 203,788 LIPA
outages across Long Island with 80,534 in Suffolk County. The number had been decreasing but due to the nor'easter which hit Long Island around 60,000 outages occurred on Wednesday.
The LIRR will continue to operate on a modified schedule on Thursday and Friday. This reduced level of service is still required because two of Amtrak's four East River tunnels remain out of service as the result of flooding associated with Hurricane Sandy.
Superintendent of Highways Alex Gregor
has announced that curb side pick up of all debris will begin on Monday, November 19. For more information visit: www.southamptontownny.gov
