Exploding Homes And The Stench Of Gas: Long Island, Post-Sandy

Oct 30, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: CW11 New York WPIX-TV

When PIX 11 News took a driving tour of some towns on the South Shore of Long Island , on the morning after Hurricane Sandy smacked the tri-state area, we came upon an early, eerie image on Grand Avenue: a house that was blown to bits, save for its concrete foundation.

My father lives at 2181 Jerusalem Ave, North Merrick,#4 NY 11566. He is 78 years old and I have not been able to reach him since the night before the storm hit. He tried to call me from his cell phone yesterday, but the phone cut out before he could speak. I have no idea what kind of damage his neighborhood has suffered, or whether or not he and his wife are safe, or his home. He didn't stock up on food or water and I'm very worried and desperate for information on the conditions in his neighborhood. Any information you can please share with me would mean so very much to me. I'm in FL and extremely concerned. You can reach me at KimberlyRoad@aol.com. Thank you.
Kimberly, please think twice before placing this much personal information on the www. While most people are good and caring, it just takes one bad individual to take advantage of an opportunity to do harm. Editors, can you please, please remove this post and personal information. Thanks in advance.

Kimberly can also get an anonymous or disposable email account for these purposes as well. I agree NEVER post complete personal information on line.

You would figure someone should've at posted a list of casualties so at least you know your friends and relatives aren't on it.

My parents live in long beach and it was hit very bad. The best way to view pictures or view information more centralized to long beach, ny is at http://longbeach.patch.com/ or on their official facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ #!/longbeachnewyork?fref=ts It's under the title "City of Long Beach, New York"

When searching the internet be sure to always write in NY after Long Beach or else you may get information for Long Beach Island New Jersey.
