Help for Sandy victims in Copiague
Representatives from the state Department of Financial Services will be coming to Copiague on Wednesday to help residents who suffered damage from superstorm Sandy.
The department’s mobile command center will be at Copiague Memorial Public Library, at 50 Deauville Blvd., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Representatives will meet individually with homeowners, renters and business owners who have insurance-related issues stemming from damage caused by Sandy. Representatives will help residents contact their insurers if they have been unable to do so and answer questions about insurance coverage.
Those who are unable to come to the library are encouraged to call the department’s storm hotline, 1-800-339-1759, which is staffed from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday to Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Insurance information is also available on the department’s website, www.dfs.ny.gov.
