Feds surveying storm damage in Riverhead
Riverhead residents whose homes were badly damaged during last week's severe rainstorms could soon receive federal help.
Linda Lewis, the deputy supervisor for the Town of Riverhead, says federal and state officials will be assessing damage in the area Monday.
"We may need to look at these homes and if they are not habitable, we are hoping the federal government will come and help us purchase these homes, relocating these families somewhere else in the Town of Riverhead," Lewis says.
Federal and state officials will also be touring parts of Nassau County that were affected by the nor'easter that hit the region in March and last week's storm.
