We all remember "Brownie" from the Katrina days, as the Left and the Media made him a household name after the way FEMA reacted to the aftermath of Katrina.
There is a high-rise in Manhattan that has been without power for 17 days:While most of Manhattan had its power restored about four days after Superstorm Sandy, persistent problems in some places continue to make life miserable more than two weeks later for hundreds of elderly and ill residents who have been forced to live in cold, dark high-rises.
As CBS 2’s Amy Dardashtian reported, those residents were demanding answers Tuesday night.
At Knickerbocker Village — a housing complex bounded by Monroe Street, Market Street, Catherine Street and Cherry Street on the Lower East Side – a hallway stunk of rotten eggs Tuesday night.
“It’s a nasty odor that makes you want to throw up,” one resident said.
But the stench was the least of the woman’s problems. She had to use a cooler as a refrigerator.
It was the 16th day without power, and she was also boiling her water. She was lacking hot water, too.
Even her dog was bundled in sweaters.
Trash was piling up, the incinerators were all broken, and out of 12 elevator banks, nearly half were out of service. The elderly residents were left stranded as high as a dozen flights up.
I guess "we" only care about the suffering of others, and lack of solutions from FEMA and local Government when there is a Republican in the White House.
*The current FEMA Administrator is named Craig Fugate. Why isn't his name known as well as Michael Brown's was/is?
