Storm-Socked Dune Road Unscathed Despite Bomb Cyclone NorEaster

"There would have been a breach if not for the county's swift actions."

HAMPTON BAYS, NY — Despite a fierce "Bomb Cyclone" nor'easter that left a swath of downed trees and wires and knocked out power across Long Island, the recently storm-socked Dune Road held steady.

According to Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman, all the hard work to shore up the dunes paid off.

"There would have been a breach if not for the county's swift actions," he said.

On Thursday, Schneiderman and Southampton Town Senior Bay Constable Al Tuzzolo surveyed the area, which was in good shape after the storm.

That wasn't the case last week, however, when a storm sparked major flooding on Dune Road.
