The Town of Smithtown released an emergency alert late Tuesday night recommending parents refrain from trick-or-treating on Halloween with the damage Hurricane Sandy caused.
From the town's website:
If at all possible, please refrain from trick-or-treating in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy as there are many hazards on the streets. If you must do so, parents should not let children go out unattended.
The detrimental effects of Sandy are apparent throughout the town as trees and power lines are down and power is out through much of the area. But kids have one time a year to dress up in costume and go door-to-door for candy with their friends.
Will you take your kids out trick-or-treating or will you stay in? Would you give your kids permission to go out today?
