Suffolk Transit leaves ppl stranded in Riverhead today

Posted by R40SlantontheB on Mon Apr 9 23:41:31 2012

Just got word the S58 stopped running to Riverhead because of the fires in the woods in Manorville sometime this afternoon, leaving ppl stranded there.
No mention on the ST website, of course.
Route 25 was closed but the bus could've detoured to the LIE or 25a...no excuse for that.

LIE was shut down starting at Exit 64 which would have been the nearest exit for the S58.

Besides either detour wouldn't be good for anyone past Coram Plaza.

Could have sent it to Port Jeff on 25A.

It should be noted that the fire started in Ridge, on the North East corner of BNL property and then moved East and then south east into Manorville. The fire was so big at the start that not only could you see it so far as Nassau Colisum but over in Connecticut, but there were two comand posts and two OIC's for fire department operations. One was the 1st Assistant Chief for Ridge FD and the other was the Chief of the Manorville Fire Department. (Ridge FD Chief had control of the Ridge side of the fire and the Manorville Chief had control of the Manorville side of the fire.

Could have possibly have been done or 25 to William Floyd to 25A. John is just reporting what I told him which I heard from my sister who heard it from her boyfriend's half sister's (I may have left out the half sister part when I first reported it to John) father's girlfriend who said that the bus had stopped running and was stuck at Riverhead County Center.

You mean the chain of how I learned about it?

Yeah. Looking at it again, the chain was only 3 people long (sister's boyfriend's relative->sister->you), but the way you said it made it sound longer.

Yeah, I had a hard time trying to say how I heard about it, they way I said it here was the best way, though the way you said it was way easier.
