Hurricane Sandy Floods South Patchogue Streets

Water levels rose onto Cedar Avenue, Rider Avenue, Campbell Street, Patchogue Street and others.

Hurricane Sandy flooded several of Patchogue Village's streets that are adjacent to the Great South Bay.

"Unless you have to come south, don't come south," said Patchogue Village Mayor Paul Pontieri when Patch ran into him.

Southbound traffic into affected Patchogue Village streets was blocked at several intersections except for residents who absolutely needed to get to their homes.

Despite the blockades, some residents cited traffic issues due to the appearance of several cars.

Laurie Kiss and Diane Smith at Schroeder Lane said that traffic on Rider before the blockade backed up, and that some of the vehicles entering the waters were creating wakes that would splash against homes.

The Village's Department of Public Works has been working on the clearing of trees and debris. Some power lines, which ultimately are fixed by LIPA, were hanging low over streets.

I'm not accusing anyone of "faking it". http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com My point is that our Pompeii - like most classical http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net sites, in fact - is the product of collaboration between http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com modern rebuilders and conservators, and the original Roman builders http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com themselves, with the lion's share of the work on our side.And it's no less impressive or moving http://www.coachoutletaol.org for that - as the body casts help to show.One of http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net the video clips played in the exhibition at the Getty Museum comes http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com from Roberto Rossellini's film, Voyage in Italy, in which the lead couple, http://www.coachfactoryoutlettx.com played by Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders, tour the country as their marriage http://www.coachfactoryonlinefc.org disintegrates.On their visit to Pompeii they watch the plaster being http://www.coachoutletwy.com poured into a cavity left by two of the victims. http://www.coachoutletonlineybw.com In the movie's most haunting scene, these victims emerge as a couple.
