Fire Island Devastated By Hurricane Sandy

Published Date Author: , October 31st, 2012

Fire Island, the long barrier island off the southern coast of Long Island east of New York City, has been battered over the years by natural disasters like fires, “n’easter” storms and hurricanes. But nothing since the great hurricane of 1938 has hit the island like Sandy.

Fire Island “has been devastated,” Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone Newsday, Long Island’s principal newspaper, on Tuesday. “It will have changed in a number of ways.”

Suffolk County sprawls from tightly packed suburban towns nearer to New York City to the potato farms and grand estates of the Hamptons on the eastern end. Sandy hit the entirely county hard, with nearly everyone experiencing power outages and widespread flooding.
