State officials to help Sandy victims apply for aid
State officials will be in three Suffolk County communities this week, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, to assist homeowners and business people harmed by superstorm Sandy.

On Wednesday, they will be at Southold Town Hall on Route 25. And on Thursday and Friday, they will be at the Bellport Shopping Center, 10 Farber Dr.
