3 Weeks After Hurricane, Trees and Debris

Add your photos of storms' aftereffects.

Three weeks after Hurricane Sandy struck the area, scores of trees are still ensnared in wires, or encroaching on streets in Huntington.

Though many streets are entirely clear, showing no effect of the hurricane or the nor-easter that hit a week later, many side streets are partially blocked by hanging wires, dangling broken limbs or large piles of debris.

Huntington Patch invites you to add your photos and the location so we can map them.

What is going to happen when those piles of logs are covered by snow, and a motorists hits the "snow drift" ? Lots of damage, and possibly serious injury. This is a real hazard and I would like to see my town deal with the issue before it causes real trouble

LP this has been a monumental task!!! Our streets are passable and the main roads are clear! I have seen TOH employees working 7 days/week. Be patient.

Huntington Highway Dept. is doing the best job it can given the enormity of the damage and debris that has been piled up at curbs throughout the town. It would help if homeowners would also pile the debris not in the street but on part of their property at curbside. Everyone needs to work together to clean up the town after this terrible series of storms. Happy Thanksgiving To All!

yes, but what about the TOH indicating they would not pick up tree limbs longer than 4 feet or with a diameter greater than 6" ? That is what concerned me.
