WOODBURY - Dozens of storm-damaged homes on Long Island were sold to the highest bidders Tuesday.
As reported, 81 of the residences in Nassau County were originally bought by the state at their pre-storm value as part of the New York Rising Housing Recovery Program.
The starting bids for some of the homes were as low as $28,000. The bidding is a two-day event that includes 150 residential properties in 26 Long Island towns.
The homes include all-style properties damaged by Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee.
More than 65 Suffolk County properties will be auctioned off Wednesday.
