A federal storm damage assessment team is set to visit Suffolk County Wednesday to inspect homes and businesses slammed one week ago by torrential rains that flooded basements and highways from Babylon to Rocky Point, officials said Tuesday.
The inspection is expected to help determine whether the towns hardest hit by the storm — Islip, Brookhaven and Babylon — will be declared a disaster area, making them eligible for federal financial aid, officials said.
Federal Emergency Management Agency officials are scheduled to meet Suffolk County and town officials Wednesday to examine multiple sites damaged by the storm, which dumped a state-record 13.57 inches of rain in less than 24 hours at Long Island MacArthur Airport in Ronkonkoma
