From the Edge in Boston:

Fire Island, the long barrier island off the southern coast of Long Island east of New York City, has been battered over the years by natural disasters like fires, “n’easter” storms and hurricanes. But nothing since the great hurricane of 1938 has hit the island like Sandy.

The superintendent of Fire Island National Seashore, Chris Soller, echoed Bellone’s words. Predicting “dramatic changes” to the island’s geography, he mentioned several breaches on the far eastern end of the island, with one so deep that it could effectively divide Fire Island into two separate islands.

I absolutely love Fire Island. Jamie and I have been there a few times and it is a national treasure with a rich history for the LGBT community. Truth Wins Out wishes the residents a speedy recovery.
