Wednesday brought pounding rains to Nassau County, and heavy flooding in especially in Garden City and Mineola.
For some, the storms served as a reminder that this is hurricane season, nearly one year after Tropical Storm Irene hit Port Washington.
Local leaders want us to be prepared. For instance, Assemb. Michelle Schimel, D-Great Neck, is partnering with the Long Island Power Authority to hold seminars on on Aug. 21.
Which has us wondering: Will you attend one of the seminars? How concerned are you about hurricane season? Have you thought about putting together an storm-emergency kit for this year? Tell us in the comments.
