Street Flooding Begins As Sandy Approaches

Water from the Great South Bay covering roads in southern sections of Babylon Village and West Islip.

As winds and rain from Hurricane Sandy begin to lash the south shore of Long Island, residents living along the Great South Bay are seeing water levels rise with several streets already covered and impassable.

A number of homes south of Montauk Highway in Babylon Village and West Islip were seen with sandbags lined across garages and front doors in an attempt to stem the tide from rising flood waters.

Throughout the storm, Patch will be posting photos from Sandy. Readers may also share their photos and video clips on this story. But please be safe!

Won't be long before the water flows over the street.
