Just saw a news clip of Red Hook relief activities. Red Hook is an area in Brooklyn right near the water where my friend Sean lives. The water overran everywhere and the damage has been enormous. While FEMA and Housing authorities scrambling to provide hot food and water for Red Hookians who don't have power and running water, with their twitter and smartphone, Occupy Wallstreet stepped up their game by providing food, supplies and transportation. They are becoming more and more like Hamas sans blowing stuff up.
Now I wish I had a car and a twitter account. All I could do was donate some money:
Their website is slow but after a minute or two it will come up. Donate if you can. I might trek down to one of the gathering sites and volunteer this weekend if the power doesn't come back on in those areas.
