Downed Trees, Wires Block Southampton Village Streets

Village personnel and utility workers clean up village after Hurricane Sandy passes.

Some fallen trees blocking main arteries in Southampton have already been cut up and pushed to the side of the roadway to allow traffic through, while some side streets are obstructed by trees and downed wires still, as of Tuesday afternoon.

Bishop's Lane was inaccessible from Hill Street because of a tree that had fallen perpendicular to the lane, and Hill Street was closed from the 71 Hill Street complex to Windmill Lane due to a utility pole in front of the Southampton Cinema that was leaning over the roadway.

While many residents of the village are still without power, Main Street businesses were powered up. To name just a few, Herrick Hardware was busy, and Village Gourmet Cheese Shoppe and Silver's were open for business as usual.

Village Hall is closed, and many businesses remain boarded up.

Do you know a street that is closed — or that has recently reopened?  Please leave a comment below to let everyone else know.

I am very concerned about my house on Middle Pond Road. Please let me know how bad things are on this road. Even a little rain ends as a flood there... Armine Cileli

There was flooding of properties on Shinnecock Bay. I'm not sure if it was as bad for properties on Middle Pond.

Can anyone tell me if there is flooding in vicinity of St James church?

Bill, where is that church?

Brendan, St James Church is at 100 South Main St about an 1/8 mile outside town. Thanks

That area held up OK. Maybe some downed trees.

Yesterday afternoon there was a huge old tree blocking Great Plains Road west of Coopers Neck Lane. The village had the road blocked off.

Dune Church south of Lake Agawam is fine.

Brendan, thanks for the positive news. We're having a pretty tough time in coastal RI towns too. Tired of indoor camping. Hope you all can back to normalcy soon.
