  • I know this is a like a band-aid on a missing limb, but maybe if anybody needs anything specific, they can post it here.  There are a lot of people who want to help, I'm sure, but don't even know where to start... I'm sure that goes for people trying to clean up right now--where to even begin.

    But I can offer a hand, tools, etc, if people need them, and I'm sure other people can, too.

  • I was thinking of a sump pump and 12v to 110 converter for the car to pump people out would be a good start.

  • I need a new car. I need someone to pump the gasoline out of our garage/basement that has rendered our whole structure unlivable due to noxious fumes. We need power. We need cell tower access restored. We need someone to undo all of the damage of the past 24 hours.
    I need the sea because it teaches me.

  • It seems like there are a lot of us who live in other boroughs who want to come to help dig out, but we don't know anyone in Rockaway (or LB) personally.  What about having a central meeting place in RB and in LB where you guys who need help can go to meet those of us who can come out with friends and tools and whatever else?  Then we could go where we're needed, and not just wander around looking for people.  Or if that's not possible, PMing works fine too.

    I might be able to come tomorrow morning, if work allows.  Could probably have a couple friends with me, too.
