High tides flood streets in Amityville

Officials say that residents should remain indoors through the next high tide this evening


AMITYVILLE — High tides, gusting winds, and flooded streets are making travel dangerous on the South Shore of Long Island Friday night. Due to high water levels, officials are asking residents to stay indoors for the next high tide at 10:30 p.m. and not to attempt to drive.

"Get yourselves and your families home and stay there. The wind gusts will be very high; we've already recorded wind gusts as high as 60 miles an hour in Suffolk County. Tides will be unusually high, so that means damage to your car if you don't get it up to a higher place," said Joe Saladino, the Oyster Bay town supervisor.
