3rd nor’easter in 2 weeks hits Long Island, knocks down trees and utility poles

Suffolk sheriff: Northbound lane on Country Road 31 closed for PSEG Long Island repairs


ISLIP — Long Islanders are digging out again as nor'easter no. 3 slams parts of Long Island with snow.

Last week, many places like Patchogue, experienced severe flooding. Local resident Thomas Smith lives yards from the water and says this go-around, it only seems to be moderate and nothing too serious.

“It was a whole week of high ties, so I’m feeling kind of lucky,” Smith said.

But across Long Island, many roads, parking lots and even street signs are covered in snow. With the snow continuously falling, it makes driving even more difficult with low visibility.

This nor'easter is also wreaking havoc in many towns, taking down trees, like one on Islip Avenue. A photo the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office tweeted informs residents that “several roads are closed at Gabreski Airport and part of the northbound lane on Country Road 31” as PSEG Long Island fixes a downed utility pole.
