Representatives of the state Department of Financial Services will be in Copiague Wednesday to offer assistance to those with insurance issues stemming from superstorm Sandy.

The agency will be at the Tanner Park Senior Center from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to help homeowners, renters and business owners.

Department representatives will help citizens contact their insurers if they have been unable to do so and answer questions about insurance coverage.
