Just drove around to all the stations and it's pretty crazy out there! Are there any 24-hour stations around? Some people were considering going out in the middle of the night.
Heather Doyle (Editor) November 01, 2012 at 08:48 PM
Thanks Gus! I'll add you.
John Levy November 02, 2012 at 04:54 PM
Can anyone tell me how to get help to a friend in Syosset? We're out in California. I know he has cash, he needs gasoline and likely supplies for his family which includes a couple of young kids.
Heather Doyle (Editor) November 02, 2012 at 07:21 PM
Hi John. If he has an emergency on his property, he can call the Town for help at 516-677-5757. They're also giving out rations from 10am-2pm at Syosset-Woodbury Community Park.
John Levy November 02, 2012 at 10:19 PM
Thanks Heather, I'll text my friend. Bless you all there.
John Levy November 02, 2012 at 11:58 PM
Heather, one more question if you can please help me. I know this is probably a stupid question, but is there anyplace nearby to get gasoline for their generator? They have little kids and no power. I know that probably describes a good chunk of your community but these folks are the only ones I know in Syosset. Thank you.
Heather Doyle (Editor) November 03, 2012 at 12:51 AM
No problem John! Yes, I believe all the stations give out gas for generators. I've seen people lined up with the little red jugs at most of the stations. Pretty much wherever you get regular gas. Does anyone else out there know a good one in particular?
S. Long November 03, 2012 at 02:08 AM
Heather, you need to report what's been going on at the libraries - Syosset Library has had daily numbers over 2000 people and we've added hours, bought extra surge protectors, have people literally camped out in the aisles and lines around the block when we open in the morning. Which of the schools have power? Why aren't they doing anything to help out?
Alexander November 03, 2012 at 07:24 AM
Good afternoon. I'm from Russia.My mom now is in Syosset,NY, Georgia Dr. About 4 days I lost all connections with my mom! Can't phone or leave sms. What is happening now in Syosset?Anybody hurt? Please help me!
Homes By Mara Realty November 03, 2012 at 09:33 PM
Alexander, I'm sure your mom is ok. Since Syosset is not near the water we don't have the devestation that other parts of the Island have. Call me if you still need help. 516 551 3347.
Homes By Mara Realty November 03, 2012 at 09:38 PM

Bonnie Griffin November 03, 2012 at 11:58 PM

Christopher DiFilippo November 06, 2012 at 03:41 PM
The Bank Of America at the intersection of Woodbury Road and Jericho Turnpike is now open for normal business and has charging stations setup for your devices. See either Randy or Vickie who are very helpful. Wishing the Best to all during this recovery after Storm Sandy

Lipa is associated with the people tryiing to force a new mall. Since syosset people said no to mall so this lack of power restoration is as a punishment. Convoys parade LIE without doing any repairs.
A November 07, 2012 at 07:03 AM
Why were repair vehicles used for assessment? Assessment is to be done by people in compact cars. Precious resources were wasted. Is loss of timely power restoration in syosset a way of punishing syosset for saying "no" to the proposed mega mall. The mall guys and lipa leaders are friends and partners
A November 07, 2012 at 07:10 AM
Let's boycott lipa in syosset for one month. Think of creative ways to live without lipa power for one or two days a week. The CEO of LIPA must resign. Why should someone mis-managing resources be allowed to continue amassing a small fortune while the ordinary people suffer.
A November 07, 2012 at 07:11 AM
Shame on LIPA!!!
