Fears Sandy relief support center will close

BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- Superstorm Sandy victims in one Brooklyn neighborhood are worried relief workers will pack up and leave when more winter weather hits.

Neighbors collected signatures and showed their solidarity to keep the center open.

The center has been in a tent that can't withstand the winter weather.

The National Guard brought in new tents. The people who live there fear they'll disappear.

Ten weeks after the storm, volunteers are helping new people every day.

"We call it triage, figuring out who needs the most help and figuring out how to get proper help to them and directing them to the proper resources," said Kelly Mead, volunteer.

The Office of Emergency Management says there are no plans to shut down the relief center.
