Long Island storm recovery continues

Nov 12, 2012 4:36 pm
Billy Shannon and Tom Casey report in the Register Star on the role Columbia County and Hudson city firefighters are playing in the ongoing storm recovery efforts on Long Island. Since the day after Hurricane Sandy hit, causing widespread flooding, fires and power outages, county personnel have been deployed to various locations downstate. The volunteers are assigned to Long Island firehouses, where they deal with fires and other emergencies while many of the local firefighters deal with damage to their own property. Members of the Chatham and Niverville fire departments are stationed in Meadowmere, Queens. Hudson volunteers are currently working in Oceanside and Island Park. The area is just north of Long Beach, which saw some of the worst storm damage. Read the full story in the Register Star.

WGXC's Tony Fallon, a resident of Cairo, lived in Long Beach for 37 years and still has family on the island. On one of his recent trips to help with the clean up last week, Fallon called in to the WGXC Afternoon Show, Thurs., Nov. 8. He spoke with co-hosts Ellen Thurston and Richard Roth from Long Beach about the devastation he observed and the ongoing recovery effort. Play interview. (14:04)
