New York City and the rest of the northeast took a big hit from Hurricane Sandy this week.
Millions are still without power, potable drinking water, or the ability to get to and from work. It is a scary situation that will take several weeks to truly get over.
Edit: If you know someone impacted by Hurricane Sandy, they can apply online for FEMA assistance at http://www.disasterassistance.gov/ or by calling 1-800-621-3362. If you’re on a smartphone you can check m.fema.gov Help them out by passing on this info and help them communicate with the agency.
Meanwhile, the nation’s Presidential election happens on Tuesday. Will New Yorkers get to vote? Does it even matter on a national scale since New York tends to be a super-blue state?
