Sandy open house event held at Briarcliff College in Patchogue

An open house event was held at Briarcliff College Monday night for Superstorm Sandy victims in need of help and information.



The event was attended by Suffolk legislators, New York Rising workers, contractors and many organizations.



The deadline for homeowners to sign up for New York Rising is Friday, April 11.



A storm recovery official told News 12 that the program's registration has been extremely low for senior citizens and low-income homes. They say they want to sign up as many people as they can before the deadline.
