Hurricane Sandy, dubbed Frankenstorm, has come and gone, and left a trail of destruction in her path. Almost one million Long Islanders are without power, and thousands have been displaced from their homes because of the destruction brought on by the storm. State and Local Officials, including Gov. Cuomo,  are urging residents to stay inside if at all possible, and some townships are even asking residents to stay inside this evening, and celebrate a “postponed” Halloween this weekend because of the large number of downed wires and dangerous debris, making trick-or-treating this evening potentially very unsafe. As we begin to pick up the pieces, and put back together everything that Sandy has destroyed, it is important to remember to be up to date on the latest news updates, and keep on hand information pertaining to your local school district, LIPA, and emergency services providers that are aiding Long Islanders in this time of crisis. We’ve compiled some of the most important resources you’ll need in the upcoming days and weeks, and we will update this article regularly with information pertaining to Hurricane Sandy, so that you and your loved ones can stay safe and easily access all the resources you’ll need from one place.
