Volunteers and disaster victims have taken rescue, recovery and security into their own hands on New York's storm-ravaged borough of Staten Island, where they say FEMA has forgotten them.
Already without power for more than a week in the wake of superstorm Sandy, hard-hit residents of the borough's South Shore braved a nor'easter Wednesday night, many -- perhaps hundreds -- huddling in condemned homes and ignoring orders to evacuate out of fear looters would take what little Mother Nature has left them.
"FEMA packed up everything yesterday and left the area," said MaryLou Wong, whose home in the Midland Beach neighborhood was destroyed. "They haven't come back."

What do Bloomberg, Christie, and The Boss think of their boyfriend now?
How sad. President zero had his photo op and many, many people changed their vote from Romney to zero after his looking presidential during this crisis. What fools!
Obama must have ordered FEMA to Stand Down!
You mean big government and high taxes are failing in New York?
Sorry lady, there’s no more chinese money left.
Blue State - call your government.
B. Obama (i) Dem 49.9% 67,524
M. Romney GOP 49.1% 66,420
Boy the MSM going to jump all over Obama on this! < /sarcasm >
BTW did Whorealdo ever visit Staten Island?
“Volunteers Step Up”. Here in the rural Midwest this is S.O.P. , not a headline.
It is kinda ironic when liberals starve in the dark.
Big government will fail you every time - yet they keep voting in MORE of it...
Mercy Chefs is there already set up and serving hot meals.
Who’da thunk a hurricane would create future Republicans? Self-reliance, even forced self-reliance, builds a conservative character. Any private relief efforts worthwhile?
They don't need the Oboma photo ops anymore. The election is over - SUCKERS!
Besides, Oboma needs the money because he promised to take care of womans crotches. "It's the crotches, stupid."
Yup. Volunteers are on the scene and pitching in long before the local or state authorities can mount a meaningful response.
Battered wives’ syndrome...they’ll pull the lever for a Democrat again and again and again...
