Initial reports garnered from the Lake Buel mailing list seem to indicate that the damage caused by Sandy was less than it might have been.
The power went out for a few hours in at least some spots on the Lake.
Peter Menaker Road was closed the day after, but because there was no surface erosion visible from the top of the road, it’s suspected that there is a downed tree.
So far not many trees seem to have fallen, although there are lots of branches down.
The level of the Lake seems to have gone up 4-6″.
Reports suggest even lighter damage on the 57 side of the lake.
If you have more information, please either post it as a comment to this post or let us know and we’ll update this post directly. Thanks.
