    'Superstorm' Sandy: Your stories

    Sandy: few days later.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     salamogrash told me, 'Our area suffered a lot. For several days we had no power, water, phone, internet. We still have no heat in buildings. Most of the stores are closed. Only those selling vegetables and fruits are open. So people cannot buy any food that need cold storage like eggs, milk and meat products. It's impossible to get cash since all banks are closed, but stores do not accept food stamps or credit cards. I could not imagine to see this human disgrace in the capital of the world in the 21st century. Thousands of elderly people were trapped without elevator on 23 stories in my building and dozens of other buildings in the area without phone, power and water.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    Brighton Beach Avenue used to be the best food shopping in tri-state area for Russian immigrants. Few days after Sandy most stores and banks are still closed. To get food and cash from distant locations there must be a gas. Having no choice people search for food in garbage hills that grow higher and higher every day.
