Woman Gets Her Power Turned back on After Hurricane


Source Link: cbs4.com

An elderly woman who had been living without power in her home due to hurricane damage was finally seeing the light Friday night, when power to her home was restored. What makes her story amazing is that the hurricane which put her in the dark was Andrew, almost 15 years ago, and she's been living without power to her house since August 24, 1992.

Whay brought this story to my attention and why I am bringing it to ATSNN is that here is a good example of just how long and how bad our FEMA and emergency response to natural disasters have been. It took 15 years before the state figured out that this woman was living in such a dreadful state.
Where is the public outcry for this woman and her plight? We have all become centered on the problems following Rita and Katrina but here we demonstrate that they were not the first (but hopefully they will be the last) case of neglect from our federal, state and city goverments.

Already a "breaking news" story. The breaking news story isn't supposed to be over 48 hours old either. Check out the original here.
