So much is happening. I have been quite busy in the past few days. I heard the subways are starting to fix up around my area which means I can travel out of the Rockaways where I live. No hot water or heat so far but more and more people are finally getting electricity. My neighbor has a considerable amount of pictures and videos and I will soon harass him for all of them to post here.
Here are some of the photos from Hurricane Sandy where I live:
|Right up the street. Sand from the Beach washed into the neighborhood.|
|Large piles of sand block neighbors homes. People's possessions ruined by the flooding are set out as trash.|
|Boardwalk is blocked with piles of sands. Boardwalk pieces are gathered up near the beach.|
|Boardwalk is mangled and shifted off route.|
|From the beach looking out the boardwalk.|
|Whats left of the boardwalk...the foundation.|
Today, all of the sand has been swept up the street and pushed back to the boardwalk. The park is open alhamdoolilah as well. A large group of volunteers went through all the houses and tore up the basement floors which were damaged from the flooding. Things are getting slowly back to normal.
