Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: An isolated shower or thunderstorm remains possible in the hot and humid air this Saturday, the 4th. Same for Sunday...although NOT a wash-out either day!
NEW YORK (November 10, 2012)--Hundreds of New Yorkers got on buses Saturday at City Hall and headed to help people in neighborhoods devastated by Superstorm Sandy.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg showed up to greet the volunteers before they boarded yellow school buses going to Staten Island, the Rockaways and Coney Island.
One volunteer heading out to help was Andy Josuweit, 25.
His home in Manhattan has power and heat, and it would be easy to keep the people suffering in remote flood-damaged neighborhoods "out of sight, out of mind," but he says he and his friends feel like they need to do something.
The volunteers planned to sort donated goods, go house to house to check up on residents, deliver supplies, and even clean up parks.
