SANDY SLAMS CITY ISLAND

News

Super-storm Sandy has wreaked havoc on City Island, where a fire brought out over 100 firefighters to fight flames, while dealing with strong winds and heavy rain at a popular waterside restaurant. Fire destroyed Tony's Pier Restaurant.

FDNY reports that it took four hours to contain the three-alarm blaze because of Sandy's severe weather. Downed trees and branches also blocked firefighters' path to the island. No injuries were immediately reported.

Meanwhile, thousands of City Island residents find themselves in the dark and without power as a result of the damage caused by Super-storm Sandy. Rains and heavy winds battered the island and leaving behind extensive damage, which will take some time to clean up.
