Weather Alert  

LIGHT SNOW AND SPOTTY LIGHT FREEZING RAIN POSSIBLE THIS EVENING As temperatures slowly rise this evening, light snow should quickly change over to rain across Long Island, New York City and the suburbs just north and west, and across coastal and southeastern Connecticut, with at least a coating of accumulation, and as much as an inch farther away from the coast. As precipitation mixes with and changes to rain, road temperatures in these areas may still be below freezing even as air temperatures slowly rise to the mid and upper 30s, and a light glaze of ice may be possible on untreated surfaces. So plan on slippery conditions this evening even as temperatures slowly rise.

Northport Harbor, Oyster Bay, and Hempstead Harbor are areas under consideration for new ocean farming initiatives.
 
“In the tradition of Huntington’s proud maritime heritage, ocean farming would be a boon to the Northport community and Huntington as a whole, benefitting our local economy, creating jobs, and protecting our environment,” said Supervisor Lupinacci.
 
3D Ocean Farming is a polyculture vertical farming system that grows a mix of seaweeds and shellfish that require zero input—creating a sustainable form of food production, sequestering carbon, rebuilding reef ecosystems, creating jobs and improving our fishing economy.
