East Moriches became known internationally on July 17, 1996, when TWA Flight 800 exploded 8 miles (13 km) off the coast and fell into the Atlantic Ocean. The U.S. Coast Guard Station, East Moriches, was used by emergency responders, and was the site where the bodies were initially prepared for transport. A helipad was constructed at the station, and the media located their equipment and crews there for breaking news. Today there are parks in Smith Point and Center Moriches in Long Island dedicated to those who died in the crash, and a plaque bearing their names.
