5 years ago today, Sandy started pummeling Long Island around mid afternoon.

With the rain coming down sideways it was tough to get any quality shots.

These were taken from Bellport Dock from between 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. as the the weather went down hill.

Unfortunately, the catamaran on page 2 did not survive.  The rest of the boats somehow made it through.

At the time I had no idea how bad things would get, more to follow later.

On page 2 there is a short video taken before I headed for safety away from the Bay.
