i am dissapointed that he did not commend the westhampton and eastport fire department because lipas crew did not get there until 5 hours after the fire departments made the roads useable again

Its Newsday. I never expect any positive comments from them about the volunteer departments. As one of the Westhampton Fire Department members, it would have been nice if Newsday had recognized how many calls we and our fellow volunteers in Moriches, Eastport and the Hamptons responded to quickly during the course of this storm. I know we had 13 alarms to answer in that short period of time. To Disappointed from Manorville, thank you for your comment and thanks to the people who came out to say hi to us and offer encouragement while we helped out in Eastport/East Moriches.

LIPA reports only 30 of 3,142 are still without power at 1pm. Thats not even close. I can't find anyone in East Moriches that has power. What do they just throw out numbers to make themselves look good. If the worst of the storm was isolated to 2 towns why does it take so long to get the power up. With the rates we pay I expect better service from them. I commend the Fire and Rescue workers for there visible efforts I can not say the same for LIPA

Not too suprised...we actually lost power twice In East Yahpank/N Shirley but it was restored a bit quicker. Seemed like lightening was all around us every two seconds but I we didn't get any of those crazy winds and you guys aren't that far down ...glad to see that everyone came together!

I don't know if this is the same storm that knocked down 100 trees at Bethpage golf course but all I can say is that I had just finished playing the Yellow course about 2-3 hours earlier. There were other players just getting out; they must have been affected.
