Long Island braces for impacts of Lee
LONG ISLAND - On Long Island, both Nassau and Suffolk counties have braced for potential impacts.
Many areas along the south shore got a head start at reinforcing their beaches this week.
In the Town of Hempstead, pay-loaders transported large piles of sand, while crews secured boats and cleared storm drains to prepare for any flooding.
"You can see the waves from 7 to 10 feet, a lot of erosion, but people on the south shore really need to pay attention," Town Supervisor Don Clavin warned.
