Comments

Please thank Doug Kuntz for posting his pictures of the storm aftermath on Gerard Drive. As a home owner on Gerard Drive it was great relief to see our home standing there on Gardiner's Bay. We had just been there the weekend before and had a family reunion and enjoyed a beautiful day on the beach. Our family has been residents of Gerard Drive for over 40 years knowing its perils yet enjoying the unique fragile beauty of our little part of paradise. I was able to relieve the anxiety of my daughters as far away as Calfornia and Australia knowing our home was ok. I live in Canada and had no way of knowing what had happen. From Doug's picture I was able to assure our family that Gerard Drive will continue to be appreciated and enjoyed by our family for years to come. Henry Lowry
We have a home in Amagansett and are in our main home in Los Angeles waiting out the storm. I can't tell you enough how much we appreciate the coverage of the storm on your website, especially the photographs. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the photos during such a perilous time.
Any news or images of Orient? Thanks so much for all the images.
Terrific photo job. Hope you'll tell how the WLNG story came out.
Are there any photos from today? Especially from Sag Harbor. I haven't heard from anyone in my old hometown since yesterday. Is it still there? Has it floated off and become a part of Connecticut?
Neil, there are several now showing Sag Harbor on Tuesday.
Hey David and EH Star Photographers, Thank you for posting the Sandy photos. Laurie Allen
Thanks to all the photographers/posters. Hope everybody is unharmed. As I am watching this from Europe I am worried about Louse Point. Does anybody have photos from there and or Accabonac Harbor? Did the water spill over from Gardiners Bay at the bend of Louse Point Road? Thanks. Andreas
Louse Point was hit rather hard. Water and sand crossed the road at the bend you described. Driftwood was wedged up against the houses there. We will post a photograph in a bit.
i can only second sparky's comment. Many thanks to the Star team. Greetings from Frankfurt. Andreas
We are Wainscott residents and are in Paris on a business trip. The way we are keeping informed of the storm impact in Eastern Long Island is thru your very fine coverage (especially thr photos). I want to thank you for the comprehensive reporting and updates to the website so regularly. CNN and WNBC.com don't report in detail on Eastern Long Islnd. Keep up the good work and thank you very much!!!!
Can you post some pictures of Gerard Drive?
We'll see what we can do. It's impossible to get out there right now.
