It's day two after a blizzard shrouded the Miller Place-Rocky Point area in more than two feet, and one question continues ring out from frustrated locals: Where are the plows?
Brookhaven Town on Saturday opened a portal on its website where folks could report unplowed roads.
Officials in other towns have said the volume of snow, and the many abandoned cars on the major roadways, has slowed down plowing efforts. Some community members have reached out to Patch and said their roads still are not plowed as late as Sunday.
Annmarie Field of Sound Beach wrote in an email to Patch that Port Jeff and Shoreham Road in Sound Beach are still not plowed.
"This WHOLE neighborhood is STILL snowed in! The Town of Brookhaven is NOT giving them any answers as to WHEN they can expect to get out & the snow is getting harder & more difficult to plow!," she wrote. "My Nephew has two children & now has NO heat. They are freezing and cannot do anything about it until someone can get in and fix it! Shame on the Town of Brookhaven for leaving their residents stranded...This is becoming a dangerous situation!"
On Facebook, Kathy Brindley asked Sunday morning, "Has anyone in MP or SB had their road plowed yet? Looking for a little hope here......"
Ellen Benedetto responded, "nope Im in the "Hollow" in M Pl nothing but the neighbor with a Bobcat."
At Patch, we'd like you to help us create a list of what's plowed and not plowed in town so far. Just add a comment below with the name of your street and whether it is plowed or not. Send this link to people you know so we can create a comprehensive list. We will be forwarding this link to the town, as well.
