SOMERS, N.Y. – As 2012 draws to a close, The Somers Daily Voice is recapping some of the biggest stories of the past year.

When storms disabled Somers in the early fall of 2011, it was considered extraordinary, but Mother Nature tried to surpass herself this year by sending Hurricane Sandy to town.

Almost everyone in town lost power , many sought refuge at the Heritage Hills Activity Center and the town declared a state of emergency.

Trains were halted, the Internet failed, driving was treacherous due to fallen trees and wires and many people waited nearly a week (or longer) to have their electricity restored.

Somers flew its flag at half mast in memory of the two North Salem boys who tragically were killed during the storm.
