HELL ON EARTH: New York Neighborhoods “Descend Into Chaos” as Sixth Day Passes Without Power or Help
In Brooklyn, Queen’s and Staten Island, beleaguered residents prepared for a seventh day without power. And many have been forced to “scavenge for food like animals“:
…residents of the Rockaways in Queens continued struggling without power, heat or food for a sixth day as their neighborhood slowly descended into chaos.
With little police presence on the storm-ravaged streets, many residents of the peninsula have been forced to take their protection into their own hands, arming themselves with guns, baseball bats and even bows and arrows to ward off thugs seeking to loot their homes.
It has been reported that crooks have been disguising themselves as Long Island Power Authority workers and coming by homes on the peninsula in the middle of the night while real utility workers were nowhere to be found.
