Wind knocks down shelter tent on Staten Island

Posted: Updated:

For months Donna Graziano has been traveling from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, to Staten Island every day to provide a tent with heaters and food to folks in New Dorp Beach who are still struggling with the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.

The food is donated from people who live and work in the area.

Early Thursday, the fierce winds damaged the tent. Now she says there isn't anywhere for people to go locally for food and warmth.

Nicole Chati and her neighbors say Donna has been a savior for them, but she says they need a more stable structure to provide meals and heat. They say they have called City Hall, council members, and Rep. Michael Grimm's office. One of his staff members was at the site on Thursday assessing the situation.
