I understand refusing to evacuate, but it’s not fair to the people who have to save your ass.
In a situation like this storm you fly out of town, you don’t walk, you fly! Putting everything aside, this is heartbreaking news. My first stay on Fire Island was back in summer of 1979 and the men I knew back then made sure it was an enchanted one. It was a beautiful place to meditate by the ocean at night or party til’ you dropped, the choice was yours. Grateful to hear they stated there were no casualties.
I am a resident of Fire Island Pines and I can give you a first hand account of our community. WE ARE BLESSED. Of all of the communities on Fire Island, ours was one of the least damaged. Yes many ocean front homes have damage but no homes were lost, many are fine and Summer 2013 will be as fabulous as always. Many of these articles are including the other communities of Fire Island who were harder hit, not ours. The harbor area is fully in tact, the new Sip N Twirl building was completely untouched. Hotel Ciel and the Blue Whale are also fine. Most of all we are a resilient community that has bounced back from worse than this. WE ARE NOT DEVASTATED! We have been knocked down but not out!
Finally, some actual reporting for someone who has actually been there Thank you Nicole.
