No flooding at all in Islip Terrace. Being North of Sunrise Hwy in this area pretty much takes you out of any flood zone.

Pretty sure anything north of Montauk highway did not flood.

BUT they did say if we would have got the 12" of rain as predicted it could have been up to Sunrise highway in some spots.

Here's a map that shows charted flood zones vs. actual flooding during Sandy: Map of the Day: Predicted Sandy Flooding vs. Real Sandy Flooding - Technology - The Atlantic Cities. You can pan around the region to find specific neighborhoods. I'd want to have a printout of this map if I was looking at any houses near the shore. You're certainly not going to get this info from a real estate agent.

Thanks for this great link, longislander2! Not surprisingly, my former house in Babylon (waterfront) shows serious flooding Unfortunately, when I bookmarked it and tested the link via bookmark, I was unable to get the map, just the text... I even copied the URL from your link and tried to access it that way, but could not. Can you help, please? I'd really like to have access to this map without having to scroll through the C-D forum.

BTW, not trying to be argumentative, but if I'm acting as Buyer Broker (representing the buyers), you bet I'd use this map and show it--that's my job!!

WOW , did anyone click on that map and see what a predicted CAT. 4 hurricane would do to the south shore of LI ???? it would make me think twice buying a house near there !!! I'm sure we are due for a bigger hurricane in the future ...not to scare anyone but ..............................................
