Property Damage Caused By Superstorm Sandy
Superstorm Sandy’s Effect On Massapequa
Superstorm Sandy was one of the most significant Massapequa Weather events in history. This storm caused significant damage to property in the neighborhood as many trees were blown down from the fierce wind gusts.
The impact of the storm went far beyond property damage. In addition, there was a widespread power outage in both Massapequa and the Village of Massapequa Park for an extended period of time causing Massapequa Schools to temporarily close.
Because many Massapequa houses South of Merrick Road are on waterfront property, the flooding caused by Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on these areas. Many people lost all of their possessions due to the flooding and some even lost their entire home.
This was a difficult time for the Massapequa Community, which ended up pushing through as it always does. How were you affected by Superstorm Sandy?
Changes in Massapequa Weather
The weather patterns in the area have been consistent for years, but it seems as if the average temperature has been slowly increasing year after year due to global warming. This is not a weather trend that is specific to the Long Island climate as it is affecting the entire world.
If the current trend continues, there may be a decrease in the amount of average snowfall per year and an increase in yearly rainfall per year as there will be less freezing conditions throughout the winter months.
