Babylon woman paddle boards to neighbors trapped by severe flooding

Residents were unable to leave their homes due to the high tide


BABYLON — Two nor'easters made it hard for many to leave their homes or travel due to severe flooding, but that didn't stop one Long Islander from checking on her neighbors by paddle boarding to them. Marie Silverman had a bright idea.

“We had a paddle board and that's how I would get around the neighborhood to see if neighbors needed any help,” Silverman said.

Silverman says she was able to stick the paddle pretty dip and could not touch the ground.
