Week in Review: Blizzard Collapses 2 Businesses Roofs

Check out the top local headlines from the past week.

AMF Smithtown to Rebuild After Snow Collapses Roof

The blizzard may have taken out the roof at AMF Smithtown Lanes on Saturday, but it didn't do enough damage for the alley to be closed for good.

Henry Streich, general manager at Commack Lanes, confirmed Wednesday evening in a phone interview that the Smithtown bowling alley would be "completely rebuilt."

Roof Collapses at Vacant Lumber Yard

The blizzard has taken its toll on the roof of the AMF Smithtown Lanes, and now it appears to have done something similar to a vacant St. James lumber yard.

The former home to Sider Lumber, located at 711 Middle Country Road, now has its side propped-up on pieces of wood with the roof caved in, visible from the roadway. Smithtown's Building Department has labeled the building as "unsafe" and prohibits any occupancy.

St. Catherine of Siena Employee Walks to Work Through Blizzard

Ice created from the rain prior to Thursday and Friday's heavy snowfall has created unforeseen and unprecedented problems for highway crews in the town's road cleanup process, according to Smithtown's Public Safety Director John Valentine.

There were more than 25 stores in the mall that reported roof leaks, which led to the decision to close.

Heroin Possession Arrest Made at Hotel Early Saturday Morning
