IAA, a salvage auto auction company specializing in total-loss vehicles, acquired cars and trucks that were damaged, destroyed or flooded by the storm and needed a place to store them. The company made a deal with the Town of Riverhead to lease the airport land, which is closed during the winter, store the vehicles on runways and taxiways and then auction them online.
