Hempstead Town and Nassau County Host 'Town Hall' Meeting for Sandy Victims to Assist with Review of Insurance Claims

The aftermath of Superstorm Sandy remains a reality for many victims, as homeowners continue to rebuild their homes and livelihoods. Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray, Senior Councilman Anthony J. Santino and Councilman Bruce Blakeman are joining forces with Nassau County Legislator Howard J. Kopel to host a Town Hall-style meeting for Sandy victims on Tuesday, July 21st at East Rockaway Village Hall from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. to assist them with the process of submitting a review of their flood insurance claims.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is in the process of mailing letters to Sandy victims, offering them a chance to obtain a review of their flood insurance claims. A FEMA representative will be on hand to explain this review process and answer questions. 

“If you’re uneasy about how your Sandy-related insurance claim was handled, I encourage you to attend this important meeting,” Murray said. “The information session will provide concerned victims with an opportunity to get the answers they deserve.”

“I strongly urge Sandy victims to take part in this informative Town Hall meeting,” Kopel said. “Working with Hempstead Town, we’ve arrange for FEMA to be on hand so that the federal agency can respond directly to neighbors who have questions and concerns about the claims review process.”

“This meeting will serve as a valuable resource for Sandy victims who are concerned about the handling of their insurance claims,” Santino said. “We hope this meeting with help inform neighbors of the option to review their flood insurance claim,” Blakeman added.

East Rockaway Village Hall is located at 376 Atlantic Avenue in East Rockaway.

“I encourage Sandy victims to join us on Tuesday, July 21st in East Rockaway to learn more about this important process,” Murray said. “I thank Legislator Howard Kopel for partnering with us to bring this important resource to neighbors impacted by Superstorm Sandy.”
