Not unusual in an area that received as much rain in a couple days as they do all year long. Those poor folks will be dealing with the aftermath of this tragedy for some time to come.

Yeah, it's awful. More than likely a shabbily constructed sewer system.The cost will land on the homeowners, courtesy privitization.

Storm gives New Yorkers new family — each other

Thanksgiving is America’s family holiday, but for New York’s victims of superstorm Sandy, family this year got bigger, with total strangers arriving to ensure that even the neediest got turkey, apple pie and lashings of love.

In a rough part of the Rockaways neighborhood, on the Atlantic outskirts of the Big Apple, hundreds of people were treated Thursday to an open-air feast outside a school.

Teenaged students, church organizers, and a DJ were among the army of volunteers serving hundreds of locals.

All disasters land squarely on the shoulders of taxpayers and landowners, always has.
