It has been two weeks since Hurricane Sandy slammed the Sachem area with strong winds and rain and a storm surge that damaged the south shore.
Communities along the Great South Bay continue to clean up and full recovery from a storm that in places along the mainland pushed upwards of eight feet of water into many neighborhoods south of Montauk Highway will continue for some time.
In other areas, large trees were felled taking down power lines and leaving some without power for nearly two weeks.
