The post-superstorm situation continues to deteriorate in the Northeast, with words like “chaos” “panic” and “starvation” now becoming increasingly common. Victims are dumpster diving for food, having gone hungry for several days. Fuel remains in desperately short supply, and tensions are running high throughout the region.
“With patience running thin and tension running high in the fight for fuel after Superstorm Sandy, the scene at area gas stations has been chaotic,” reports CBS News. “The situation got so intense in Queens on Thursday, one man was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and menacing after he tried to cut a line at a gas station and pointed a pistol at another motorist who complained.”
Residents are currently waiting in line for six hours to get gasoline, and people are defecating in the hallways of residential buildings, as they have nowhere else to go. That shocking fact is revealing in this YouTube video.
“Police were in place at many spots to keep the peace between furious, frustrated drivers,” reports Reuters. “Frustration grew for superstorm Sandy’s victims in the U.S. Northeast on Friday, many of whom were left with no power, no gasoline and little information about when their shattered lives might return to normal.”
“They forgot about us,” said Theresa Connor, 42, describing her Staten Island neighborhood as having been “annihilated.”
