Suit may be filed against Riverhead for devastating floods
Officials say Suffolk County could soon be sued in connection to damage from the devastating floods in Riverhead.
More than a dozen people were left homeless on Horton Avenue after it was flooded out by the March storm.
A Central Islip attorney says he may file suit against the county and Riverhead town officials on behalf of the homeowners.
According to Newsday, the attorney claims officials knew Horton Avenue was flood prone for decades because of inadequate drainage.
