Freeport officials -- who are still dealing with Sandy's damage -- spent part of Wednesday making plans to cope with the effects of the nor'easter, said village spokeswoman Sophia Johnson.

Many homes in the village suffered storm and flooding damage during Sandy, and the south end of Freeport remained littered with debris, which can become a hazard in high winds. The nor'easter brought flooding to parts of the south end that also flooded last week, such as the battered Nautical Mile area.

The village is also planning a meeting for residents at Freeport Recreation Center at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Johnson said. Mayor Andrew Hardwick and department heads will attend, she said.

"Basically it's going to be everyone that's going to answer questions for the residents that have not been getting answers," Johnson said.
