Those affected by superstorm Sandy have until 3 p.m. Sunday to visit Disaster Recovery Centers in Islip and Mastic, which will be closing, according to a FEMA release.

Seven other Long Island centers will remain open.

Those affected by the storm have until Jan. 28 to register for federal disaster assistance, which could include "money for rent, essential home repairs, personal property losses and other serious disaster-related needs not covered by insurance," the Federal Emergency Management Agency release said.

Closing after Sunday are the centers at Town Hall West, 401 Main St., Islip, and at the Mastic Recreation Community Center, 15 Herkimer St., Mastic. More than 3,400 survivors have visited those centers so far, FEMA said.
