Riverhead Town is holding a Stop Throwing Out Pollutants (STOP) day today, Saturday, May 13, at the town highway department yard. There, residents can dump various household hazardous wastes they aren’t supposed to be putting in the regular garbage.
Rescuers were searching for two men who were swept out to the Long Island Sound while fishing near a boat launch in Wading River Saturday afternoon, authorities said.
An 18-year-old man, a 20-year-old man and a third man were fishing near the shore off Creek Road when an outgoing current swept them away. The third man was able to hold onto a rock, but the water was too much for the other two. Witnesses on the beach then called 911. READ
