I live in Staten Island, NY in Midland Beach one of the hardest hit areas. FEMA nor the Red Cross have not done anything to help! Grateful for private citizens and small charities that have brought food and other items but We are freezing! I am without electricity, gas, heat, hot water etc.. My basement was flooded and I can't get anyone to help clean it out and everything is destroyed there from my heating units and appliances to personal items. I'm afraid of the mold that's going to grow...

I've called FEMA a few times said they won't get to me for at least 4-5 days.. I'm in Midland Beach.. I've got a few people now helping out trying to get info and had a charity drop off a heater! Private citizens doing more to help

The entire nation should be helping - and the president should have the armed forces in there. This is an extremely overpopulated area and it is cold - our military resources could clean this up and provide much needed equipment if our president would ask...... These people need Help NOW! I live in Long Island and my area is a mess from wind - that is bad enough never mind water and sand and complete devastation!

I am so glad to see you posting. How is your area doing? I really think Mayor BloomingIdiot is not helping Staten Island on Purpose. You know he is already working some real Estate deals for himself in that Area. He is such a crook.

Yes, we also heard it from a reliable source as well that the people count is much higher! I totally agree with you Lois - my husband has lost his business (he was just in the process of selling it!) Both FEMA & his insurance said they cannot give him a dime! They mentioned "a small business loan" My husband said how can I pay back a business loan with no business? My basement apartment was also totaled - (My skinny pictures are gone, ha ha I have to laugh!) Now we are not generating...

Now we are not generating ANY money from the business - But in the whole picture WE ARE BLESSED - My husband has witnessed his neighborhood of 58 years become a war zone! He KNEW some people who died - Yet we count our blessings - I am going BACK to SI Thursday with more baby diapers, baby food etc. Would you believe that some of my neighbors here in Jersey are giving me items for my neighbors in SI & any other people that would benefit for people they do not know! I am truly blessed by having GOOD people around me!

OMG Maria, I didnt realize I forgot about Joe's business, I am so so sorry, tell him dont give up with fema, or the insurance companies, I was told fema will deny 3 times, and then if u pursue, them eventually they will help you, (denied three times) sound familiar.... and I know you Maria, and would expect anything different, you are a kind and generous person, me too I donated some clothes to my neighbor's friend who lost her house all her belongings, except for the clothes she is wearing...
