Nor'easter Brings Further Damage to Plainview

Morton Village hit with outage, roads slick and dangerous. Plainview schools closed.

The Nor'easter brought additional misery to Hurricane-ravaged Plainview and much of Long Island, with brutal winds and snow cutting power to about 60,000 additional LIPA customers Island-wide.

Plainview schools are closed today. The Plainview-Old Bethpage Middle School has lost power, Nassau County officials said. That means the county's emergency shelter located at the former high school is shut down Thursday.

Morton Village has lost power and ShopRite there is operating on a generator. Trio Hardware is operating, however. They have a full stock of storm-related needs and report hundreds of phone calls this morning from people in need.

Trees are reported down on Washington Avenue and near Plainview JFK High School.

The eastbound Long Island Expressway was closed at Exit 40 for an accident investigation Thursday morning. Some businesses in Plainview's industrial park, including a portion of Aeroflex, were without power.

"Old Bethpage was a disaster this morning," wrote Joe Nappi in a tweet to Plainview Patch. "Branches bent and broken, trees down and low-hanging power lines everywhere."

Please let us know if your street or neighborhood was impacted by this new storm, and how.

Patch is asking LIPA for fresh information on when the remaining area outages will be addressed.

We need your voices attached to this story. Also, direct questions to LIPA officials here.

Editor's Note: Please upload the latest storm damage photos here. Could someone upload photos of the damage along Washington Avenue? Near JFK? Thanks. jd

Does this site even mention Old Bethpage unless it's part of a name that begins with Plainview?

I think instead of venting his anger (entirely justifiable)Gov. Coumo should appear at Lipa demanding to see how the work is being done! Someone needs to help us . We have lived on Myron rd. Since 1972 and we are always first out last one back in any power outage! Fining them will just cause a burden on all of us down the road in higher fees! Ellen levine

I have just been informed that there is going to be a massive rally on Monday in front of the LIPA offices on Old Country Road in Hicksville at 10 am. If anyone knows where to get the inflatable rat that you see at protests, We need that for Monday

Going on Day 12 for my house, off Haypath Road between Sylvia and Lent. There is a tree hanging from the wires and resting on the transformer, yet NO trucks have been in the area AT ALL. I did see 5 tree clearing trucks today, but they (and their workers) were all parked in the Plainview Shopping Center doing NOTHING! LIPA is giving us NO answers, there is NO accountability, and the entire neighborhood is OUT. First its by Thanksgiving, then its by Christmas and now its by Monday. I'll believe it when I see it!! - FrozenAndForgotten
