Helping Sandy victims in Cedarhurst village


In an effort to help mend some of the destruction done by Hurricane Sandy, the New York State Department of Financial Services representatives came to Cedarhurst on June 10 and 11.

Inside a mobile command operations vehicle outside of village hall, employees took calls and helped residents and business owners that were affected by the massive flooding from the hurricane.

More than 100 residents and business owners received assistance during the two days, and were educated on a new program called NY Smart Home. The program was made to address remaining unmet housing recovering needs ranging from home repair and rehabilitation to mitigation and elevation.
