In Sandy's Wake: Power Lines, Trees Down & Lots of Flooded Areas to Avoid

Roads are congested with gawkers as homeowners begin assessing damage. Here's a look from West Sayville to Blue Point.

It's still dangerous outside, but not due to hurricane winds or rain. Lots of traffic on roadways, many of which are blocked by either a downed wire or tree, make travelling a bit of a challenge.

Patch drove Blue Point to West Sayville along Middle Road and Montauk Highway about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday and took about a dozen alternate turns to grab some shots of what Sandy left in her wake.

The sound of power saws was heard but many people seemed to be more curious about beach areas in all the communities and cars clogged many bay-ending streets.

Very few stores are open. 7-Eleven in Sayville was busy, but Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts in Sayville were closed. No lights on at Burger King or Atlantic Avenue deli in Blue Point, though the deli on Middle Road in Bayport was open.

If you grab a good shot, feel free to upload it to this gallery or email it to Judy.Mottl@patch.com.  Patch will check in with local fire departments for an update later today.
