Sandy’s Smelly Aftermath: Raw Sewage Coats Staten Island Streets

By

In the Dongan Hills neighborhood of Staten Island, where raw sewage spilled onto the streets during Hurricane Sandy, the mess is still there and cleaning is a losing battle, residents told NY1. "The severity of the problem hasn't been captured. They think it's just 'Get the power back on, everything is fine.' That is not the case here. This is raw sewage," Rep. Michael Grimm said. A neighbor expressed her frustration: "I have been here from the moment that stuff came into my house. I have been cleaning and I still have it because it is tracked everywhere."
