Election’s Over!

FEMA Goes Home!

Victims of an unforgiving one-two punch from superstorm Sandy and a nor’easter that both hit New York’s Staten Island say FEMA has forgotten them.

Already without power for more than a week in the wake of Sandy, hard-hit residents of the borough’s South Shore braved a winter storm Wednesday night, with many — perhaps hundreds — huddling in condemned homes and ignoring orders to evacuate out of fear looters would take what little Mother Nature has left them.

“FEMA packed up everything yesterday and left the area,” said MaryLou Wong, whose home in the Midland Beach neighborhood was destroyed. “They haven’t come back.”

Thanks for your votes, guys! We’re outie!

    Dude – did you miss the part where it said the entire area was condemned? As in nothing to be done here, get your shit and get out.

    I understand people are concerned about looters and moving trucks are in very short supply, but FEMA is not in the armed security business (at least not yet) and you can’t stay in a condemned building because it’s unsafe. That is why it’s been condemned.

    What are the alternatives here? Stay and then take the blame when someone’s flooded out condemned home burns to the ground along with everyone inside? Guess who’d be blamed for that? FEMA: for encouraging them to stay and providing bottled water and food.

    In triage some severely injured get the black tag. It sucks, it’s horrible, but when there are limited resources that could be better spent elsewhere, it’s what you do.
