Potholes were a big topic Monday around Huntington as temperatures rose after last week's bone-chilling cold.

Huntington Highway Superintendent Pete Gunther said, "We're in the process, with two or three crews doing potholes and cleaning up the streets.  We're trying to get to as many as we can before the weather changes again."

One driver told Patch that striking a pothole on Main Street just before New Year's Day had caused $314 in damage to her car.

A series of potholes on Park Avenue, cited by one Patch reader, was patched over, with the smell of asphalt hanging in the air Monday afternoon. Other readers pointed to problems at Foxhurst and Dix Hills Road, East Rogues Path and Route 110.

Gunther invited town residents to email reports about potholes to pete.gunther@huntingtonny.gov

Was wondering if a car is damaged due to a pothole, besides reporting the hole, is there anything the car owner can do to be compensated for the damage?

Depending on your car insurance company, you may be able to cover a municipality collision if you have comprehensive coverage
