This has caused significant flooding and the closure of several roadways, and Supervisor Croci urges residents to stay off all roadways and do their best to refrain from driving as traffic is significant in many areas. Residents can call 631 595-3595 to report flooding and other concerns.

Islip’s Long Island MacArthur Airport remains open and operational, although flights have been delayed until approximately 1:00 p.m. Travelers should call airline carriers directly for details, or visit www.macarthurairport.com.  The Town has also cancelled all of its day and evening Youth and Senior Recreational Programs.
