Homeland Security Head Talks about Nor'easter at FEMA Center in Coney Island

The head of Homeland Security visited parts of the city on Monday, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency recovery center Coney Island, Brooklyn, to view the devastation firsthand and to warn about this week's nor'easter.

The parking lot at MCU Park in Coney Island, Brooklyn has become a disaster recovery site, with Federal Emergency Management Agency as its centerpiece. It is a distribution center for supplies, a communications center where residents can use the phone and a place to get food stamps and apply for loans.

That is why the Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano was there Monday to talk about federal help, particularly with a nor'easter about to hit the city.
