Can anyone tell us why it took TWO WEEKS for the Red Cross to get to Sandy victims in the Rockaways?

It seems that one of the areas that was hardest hit was also the most ignored by the organization.

In the days following the superstorm, elected officials, community leaders and people with heart flooded the area with help.

Conspicuously absent, though, was the Red Cross.

But despite what actually happened, CEO Gail McGovern told NBC News of Sandy relief efforts, “I think that we are near flawless so far in this operation.”

When we see the absolute devastation left in Sandy’s wake – and the lack of help from the Red Cross – “flawless” doesn’t come to mind. Rather, “disgraceful.”
