Here we go again! Up to 40,000 New Yorkers could be forced t
Up to 40,000 New Yorkers may need to be relocated as the city prepares for freezing temperatures and more rain and wind from a ‘nor'easter’ storm.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said tens of thousands of people were in need of shelter, including 20,000 in public housing. Almost 2million people still have no power as cold weather sets in - a week after Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on the East Coast, killing at least 113 in the US.
Hundreds of thousands of commuters today faced tricky journeys into the city as public transport remained patchy. Rail service was reduced and the subway was at 80 per cent of its normal service. Most schools were due to reopen today, but some lacked power and others were being used as shelters.
