I saw this post over at CMBLAKES about the hurricane mess in New Jersey and New York.
There is a link to this CHUCK NORRIS article and the horrors that are going on there.
Right now, homeless Americans are literally freezing, wrapped in
blankets and trash bags as they struggle to survive in FEMA tent cities
such as New Jersey’s “Camp Freedom,” which reportedly “resembles a prison camp.”
“Sitting there last night you could see your breath,” displaced
resident Brian Sotelo told the Asbury Park Press. “At (Pine Belt) the
Red Cross made an announcement that they were sending us to permanent
structures up here that had just been redone, that had washing machines
and hot showers and steady electric, and they sent us to tent city. We
Sotelo said Blackhawk helicopters patrol the skies “all day and
night” and a black car with tinted windows surveys the camp while the
government moves heavy equipment past the tents at night. According to
the story, reporters aren’t even allowed in the fenced complex, where
lines of displaced residents form outside portable toilets. Security
guards are posted at every door, and residents can’t even use the toilet
or shower without first presenting I.D.
Have any of you heard or seen anything as to what's going on?
Do you have contact with anyone in the area?
It seems odd that we saw the mess Hurricane Katrina left in N.O. day after day after day.
There doesn't seem to be the same type of info coming out.
