Both Hurricane Sandy and the Nor'Easter that recently passed through Merrick caused power outages, damage to home, loss of power and more.
Another area of impact is local business. Many merchants in Merrick closed due to the storm, and others took people in to charge electronics or simply just to stay warm.
Check above for a video, which goes further in depth on the storms' impact on business in Merrick.
