Anderson Cooper talks to former Federal Reserve adviser Paul Ballew about the devastation along the Jersey Shore and how long it could take to rebuild. It was home to the popular MTV show with the same name and many memories for New Jersey residents.
How about a little coverage on some of the smaller towns on the Shore. Union Beach, NJ was devestated by the storm and could use some help. Also, Keyport and I'm sure Keansburg, NJ are just as bad. These are smaller towns with the same kind of problems as Seaside.
How do we, as a compassionate people, help get resources, clothes, generators, water, blankets to these folks across the states who are in need?
Imagine if Romney were president right now. Being that he is not a supporter of FEMA, he would be expecting each state hit by Hurricane Sandy to be helping themselves right now. Could you imagine people in those hard hit states not getting any support from the government. I think after a few more days, Romney supporters will wake up and realize how much they depend on the government, then vote for president Obama. If Romney did become president I feel sorry for the people who live in the states hit by Hurricane Sandy.
tina – really? how about the people who are screaming for supplies? do they share NO responsibility? They knoew for days that a massive storm was coming. For my family, we're stockpiling water, food, etc. Taking care of ourselves and neighbors – not waiting for the government to get their acts together to "help" me. Yes, support for infrastructure. But my family in NJ knew it was coming, filled gas cans, filled the cupboards, and are looking out for themselves, friends, and neighbors. I feel sorry for th epeople who are always looking for someone else t take care of them.
I was planning on donating clothes to a thrift shop. I would much rather donate them to an organization that could distribute them to people who have lost everything. If CNN knows what group (Red Cross?) would do this, please announce it on your programs or list it on your website.
North Jersey is a war zone. People fighting in line for gas. Guy punched a police officer. We gotta get thru this folks; animosity is not the way.
Since these states voted for Obama let him send more help. You will see that his FEMA isn't doing any better job than katrina
