Long Island was slammed by the storm that left behind quite the mess.
In Amityville, a utility pole toppled across West Oak Street, causing a building under demolition to collapse.
Greenbelt Parkway in Holbrook appeared to be impassable, and a home in Medford was blocked by an uprooted tree.
The storm also knocked over boats on the water in Mastic, some even sinking. Riviera Drive was more of a river than a road.
It was a rough commute all around. In Rockville Center, more roads flooded, making it tough for cars to get through.
