In case you forgot, two tornadoes blasted through Brooklyn and Queens in September, pulling up trees, wrecking sidewalks and killing one woman. Now, Governor David Paterson asked President Barack Obama to issue a major disaster declaration and provide FEMA assistance to cover everything from debris removal, repairs and disaster housing. FEMA officials have toured the parts of city, but are still determining if they are disaster areas. Perhaps they need to take a look at this photo of an uprooted tree pulling up the sidewalk.
