WATCH: FEMA Town Hall Meeting Erupts as Angry Staten Island Residents Demand Help Following Hurricane Sandy
Frustrations are boiling over for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Residents of Staten Island, New York attended a meeting held by town and FEMA officials, and it quickly erupted with angry victims demanding help.
One resident shouted, “But I am sleeping in my car with my wife, my kids are somewhere else, but that’s where I am going to spend Christmas?! Where do I put decorations up? Where do I put a Christmas tree up?”
WNYW’s Robert Moses reported live from New Dorp Beach, New York where he says hundreds of people packed into a high school auditorium for the meeting. They wanted answers about their
damaged homes, temporary housing, and air quality issues. Those in attendance were told to write down their questions, but the meeting quickly became an emotional shouting match with residents pleading for help.
