In Far Rockaway Tuesday, Mayor Bloomberg announced that seven Restoration Centers helping Sandy victims will open in the city.

Seven Restoration Centers, which will provide emergency and long term services for those affected by Superstorm Sandy, will open in the city, Mayor Bloomberg announced at a press conference in Far Rockaway today.

Describing them as  “one-stop shops,” which will include FEMA staff, Bloomberg said that four will open today, including one in Far Rockaway at 10-01 Beach 20th Street, and can be accessed seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Later this week, one will also open in Breezy Point.

“We are taking our ongoing relief efforts an important step further by setting up one-stop city offices that make it simpler and more convenient for New Yorkers get the help they need,” said Bloomberg. “The Restoration Centers will be an invaluable resource for the New Yorkers most impacted by the storm – and for the communities hit hardest.”

At the press conference, Bloomberg also addressed the fuel shortage.

About 60 percent of gas stations are now open and line waits are decreasing, he said, but gas rationing will continue for at least five more days.
