Storm Claims Life In Bay Shore

A 73-year-old woman was killed by a falling tree

In this photo, submitted by Stephen Takacs, the Nor'easter soaking Long Island has caused trees to fall on wires in Malverne. The storm has caused damage across both counties, including the death of a 73-year-old woman in Bay Shore, who was killed by a falling tree.

It seems this storm has claimed at least one life on Long Island.

Julia Hughes, 73, was reportedly walking to her car after leaving a family party on Lanier Lane in Bay Shore when a tree fell on her. The incident occurred at approximately 8:20 p.m. on Saturday, March 13.


Hughes, a Brooklyn resident, was transported to Southside Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Suffolk County Police Homicide Squad detectives are investigating the death. The investigation is continuing.
