Superstorm Sandy swept through Long Island and the Three Village area one year ago today. It was a powerful storm that toppled trees and snapped power lines causing massive power outages in our area.
As many as 15,000 customers in the Three Village area were without power, some for as long as 10-12 days. The Stony Brook area alone had 7,219 outages at one point. Roads were flooded, homes were lost and families were displaced in the days and weeks that followed. Some are still displaced today.
We gathered photos, many from our readers, that were snapped after Sandy that show how the storm affected our area.
