Stunning Drone Video Captures Snowstorm on New York's Long Island

A winter storm swept over Long Island, New York, in the early hours of January 7, dumping more than 9 inches of snow on northern parts of Nassau and Suffolk counties along Long Island Sound, the National Weather Service said.

Though snowfall was lighter on Long Island’s southern shores, at least 6 inches fell on East Hampton, the weather service reported.

This drone footage, taken in Southampton, shows snow dusting trees and rooftops on Friday morning. Photographer Joanna Steidle said 4.5 inches had fallen by the time she shot this video.
