evening of countless stories. Drivers trapped in their cars. Forced to sleep in them overnight. Abc's john schriffen on long island, new york, tonight with those drivers stranded. Reporter: Dozens of cars cemented in snow. As far as the eye can see. Here on long island, some areas were pummelled with nearly 3 feet of snow stopping drivers like sebastian who was trying to get home from work. You have been sitting here the whole time? No food, no drink. No nothing. Reporter: Have you called anyone for help? I'm trying to reach the police now. Reporter: Firefighters are out here doing their best. But mother nature isn't cooperating. The wind is still whipping out here. The condition is still worse. Lot of snowdrifts. Reporter: Those traveling by train didn't fare much better. Service for a second for a second day in a row between boston and new york. Passengers waiting for the first flights out. Tonight, new york area airports are open with limited service. But here on long island, this truck driver is just one of many tonight still trying to get home. Next time you hear a storm is coming, do you think you'll try to drive through it? Never. Never, ever. I will never do this again. Reporter: Crews have been able to bail out one side of this road. As you can see, there are still plenty of cars stuck out here. This car somehow ended up on a median. Amazingly, no reports of any serious injuries.
