STEP deadline looms for LI
Time is running out for Long Islanders hard-hit by Sandy to apply for free temporary home repairs.
Friday is the deadline for FEMA's STEP program, which was announced in November as a means of providing temporary repairs so Sandy victims could stay in their homes.
About 90,000 homes were damaged when Sandy hit Long Island. So far, the STEP program has helped about 600 of those homeowners.
