While Southampton Town police say many of Southampton major arteries are clear, town government officials are urging residents to stay off the roads, especially Dune Road in Hampton Bays, which is flooded west of the Ponquogue Bridge.

"All residents should stay off the roads," said Francis Zappone, deputy town supervisor for the Town of Southampton. "Low temperatures and freezing will continue to present hazardous driving conditions, especially on secondary roads."

Zappone said high winds and snowfall that will continue until 1:00 p.m. have also created white out driving conditions and snow drifts.

All roads within the town have been plowed several times overnight; however, he said that ongoing weather conditions are hampering plowing efforts, which is continuing.

Gee frank. Dune road in quogue and westhampton where absolutely clear with no problem. Hampton bays was not only ice and snow covered but the tide pushed ice blocks on the road where they froze because the road was not cleared. Also my road didn't Get plowed until 24hours after storm stopped. PS Frankie my road is a quarter mile from Jackson ave where you park the plow trucks. GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!! Call quogue and find out how they do it
