Sen. Carl L. Marcellino, R-Syosset, is calling on “New York Rising” to provide financial assistance after the devastating mudslide in Sea Cliff after this week’s heavy rains.

The rains caused a significant landslide behind a home on Bay Avenue. The Sea Cliff home’s backyard was washed away and there was a 100-foot drop to the Long Island Sound from the yard.

The retaining wall was just renovated two years ago, since then Tropical Storm Sandy caused immense erosion along our shorelines.

“It is the responsibility of government to make improvements in the wake of the state's recent string of brutal storms in order to prevent future erosion,” Marcellino said. “Doing so will positively benefit the shoreline.”

Marcellino toured the area with Mayor Kennedy and thanked the first responders for their professional and quick response.

“It is remarkable that nobody was injured as a result of this storm – however the full effect of this historic mudslide may yet to be realized,” said Mayor Bruce Kennedy, Village of Sea Cliff. “It appears that more of the hillside has been affected than was initially."
