Nassau County legislators are holding a recovery fair Wednesday in Long Beach for residents still rebuilding from superstorm Sandy.

Advocates and experts plan to discuss mental health, legal rights, flood policies under the Federal Emergency Management Agency, flood insurance, tax grievances and contractor fraud.
