I was forced to evacuate my home in Hewlett. Can anyone advise me the conditions of Mill rd/Oak dr area please?

@hewlett res: I drove down Mill Road passed Oak Drive and didn't see any noticeable severe damage. Although, I did not drive to the right down Oak or Chestnut Drive. I have a good friend who lives on Chestnut and he said that his parents reported no flooding and no severe damage to their home. So, take that for what it's worth. Sorry for no further update right now.
