Sandy leaves her mark on NK, Exeter

Special to the Standard

A North Kingstown Department of Public Works employee narrowly escaped serious injury when the vehicle he’d driven to the scene of a downed tree was crushed by another falling tree.
A Jamestown woman, who couldn’t reach a neighborhood near Mackerel Cove because police had the road blocked, drove as far as she could and parked. When she returned she found that surging water had crossed the road, sweeping her car into Sheffield Cove.

November 1, 2012

It’s going to be a while before things are back to being normal in South County.

There was still plenty of damage, not a lot of power and schools were still closed, but the area’s sports teams are returning to the field today after days of wondering when games would be played next.
Today three area teams play playoff games. In girls soccer, Narragansett plays at Westerly in the Division II preliminaries and Prout hosts Mount Hope in the D-I playoffs. The Narragansett girls volleyball team opens the Division II playoffs at Barrington.
