The homes in those regions account for one in five U.S. real estate sales. The damage will affect homes on the market and those in foreclosure.

Nassau County Legis. Dave Denenberg (D-Merrick) will host a community meeting Monday night for residents who experienced flooding issues during Sandy due to storm drain problems.

The meeting will address questions about rebuilding homes, elevating homes, Town of Hempstead building permit requirements, insurance and FEMA assistance.

It will be held at 7 p.m. in the Merrick Public Library, 2279 Merrick Ave.
