"The Island’s wind damage caused more than 400,000 homes and businesses to lose power, widespread road closures, and the Long Island Rail Road to suspend service. More than 1,000 trees fell in Nassau alone. Trees fell on houses in Long Beach, East Meadow, North Babylon, Melville, East Islip, Lindenhurst, Oakdale, and elsewhere.
