This is a great selection of blog posts. Many don't realize the ripple effects that natural disasters have. There are too many people who thrive on scamming people when during hard times like this.

To learn that scammers take an advantage of the storm is really a sad thing to hear.

The lines in gas are so long that they need police to control the people. I have to go to PA to get my gas to run My dad's equipment to get rid of the tree.
