Atlantic City's Poor Endure Storm Quietly, Humbly
"I could use some work," he said. "There's a lot of damage here. I've been here 43 years and I've never seen anything like this. We're still having a hard time. But it could have been worse. I thought I was going to die, and I'm still here."
Sheleah Gibbs said she was grateful for a relief distribution over the weekend at Bader Field, the former airport site where a broad spectrum of supplies was handed out to storm victims.
"They gave out blankets, cleaning kits, Pampers, baby milk," she said. "There was chocolate chip cookies, potato chips, water, book bags, toys for kids, shovels, trash bags. They were even talking about giving out Christmas trees, though I never saw any of those. They had so much supplies, it was amazing."
