    Long Island, NY Hit Hard By Sandy

     

    I knew that the damage was extensive when I ventured out on the morning of October 30 with my camera, but I wasn't prepared for what I saw. Enormous trees torn from the ground, downed power lines and debris of all kinds were strewn all over the streets. There were also detours on many corners and huge sections of highway with no traffic lights. Drivers would slow down at intersections and kind of "feel" their way across. In some places, trees had fallen across an entire lane of highway and I had to cautiously enter the on coming lane to drive around them. Many residents of the south shore have been moved inland as a result of the 1,500 mile wide freak, superstorm with the unassuming name. Here are some photos of refugees from Long Beach and Oceanside who were taken care of temporarily by the Red Cross at Levittown Memorial High School in Levittown, New York.
