Clean up efforts underway throughout Long Island after latest nor’easter

Fallen trees and outages were common on the North Shore, which the storm significantly impacted


GLEN HEAD — Downed trees, no power, and a great deal of snow. That's what residents woke up to Thursday morning all across Long Island after the second nor'easter in just one week made its way through the East Coast.

On the North Shore, there were reportedly over 20,000 homes and businesses that were left in the dark. And as soon as the storm finally made its way out, utility crews were on the streets the next day, ready to get to work. The storm dumped several inches of snow on the North Shore of Nassau County, but some say it still could've been much worse.

"I spoke to somebody else who was up in the Bronx and up in Connecticut. They got a lot of snow. But Long Island, at least on the North Shore, we did fine," said Kevin Kelly of Glen Cove.

However, all along the North Shore, people were digging out Thursday morning and finding themselves in some messy situations.

Dosoris Way in Glen Cove has been blocked off for hours after a tree fell in the middle of the road. The tree took down power lines with it. Crews said it might be days until the neighborhood gets its power back. Those who live in a house just in front of where the tree landed said they’re taking this as another snow day.

PSEG Long Island said they have sent out additional crews to help with the cleanup and hope to have everything back to normal within the next few days.
