Viewers have been commenting in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.


Our editorial about state and federal plans to restore beach breaches on Fire Island got this e-mail from Richard Murdocco of Setauket:

“The policy of repairing beaches to shield waterfront communities from storm(s) isn’t sustainable. We should restore wetlands south of Montauk Highway and rebuild wisely. Nature will always prevail.”

And Gus Rappold of Massapequa weighed in on the Town of Hempstead’s idea to require gas stations to install backup generators:

“A mandate like this would put small dealers out of business. Heck, let’s just require everyone to have backup power. Hempstead is being very short sighted.”
