CBS New York ran a story about the rising levels of theft and looting following Hurricane Sandy: “Rockaways residents told 1010 WINS reporter Gary Baumgarten that looting and thievery have become such serious threats that taking up arms and fleeing town are the best options for staying safe.”

The New York Post has a pieceon how gas rationing is going to start tomorrow for those left in the hurricane’s wake: “New York City and Long Island will institute gas rationing starting tomorrow, officials announced, to help ease long gas-station lines, in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The new rules will allow cars to fuel up, only if the last number of the license plate matches the day’s date.”

Joe Tacopino has an interesting article on how some FEMA offices were closed, due to the bad weather, once again reminding us that our best bet is to be well enough prepared so that we don’t have to sit and wait on help to arrive: “Ten FEMA centers in the area reportedly suspended operations because of the storm, although the location with the sign at the Mount Loretto Community Center did open at noon.”
