LYNBROOK - Thousands of displaced Long Island families torn from their homes by Superstorm Sandy are in desperate need of an affordable place to stay. With so many displaced families, finding an available hotel room anywhere on Long Island is proving to be a challenge. Suffolk officials say they've identified about 1,200 apartments and houses in the county that are available to rent. They are also looking to put families into foreclosed properties and mobile homes, as are Nassau County authorities. Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano says homeowners will have the option to put mobile homes right on their own property so that their children can stay in school.Sandy Coverage & Emergency Links
