    Aftertaste of Storm Still Lingers


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     AnnaLysa of Hyattsville, Maryland, shot these photos of spoiled food and empty shelves at a local Target store. She was without power or water from Friday to Sunday. Her advice to others in a similar situation? 'Stay calm and use your family members and friends with electricity to help you through the rough patch.'
    - katie, CNN iReport producer

    What seemed like a minor storm last weekend, is still a major problem. Stores like Target are discarding food that were left in refrigerators when the power went out over the weekend. As seen here in a local target, in Prince George's Maryland. I spoke with one employee who says the company just isn't taking the risk of selling food items that were left over in refrigerators that weren't function, as a result of the power outages. The outages were caused by the storm.
