Quincy Officials Helping Those In Need Following Storms

QUINCY, MA (WBZ-AM) -- From the Red Cross to Emergency Management, to the Department of Transitional Assistance, more than a dozen state and local agencies are represented at Quincy's parks and recreation office on Marymount street today to assist south shore residents impacted by the back-to-back storms of recent days.

Many of those residents have been struggling to get back on their feet following the last storm.

Jimmy's house on post island road is still filled with 9 feet of water along with gas from a leak and sewage from a broken pipe.

“It’s day by day, city engineer, city inspector, EPA and OSHA up there we had a wall that caved out in our basement” he said.

The city is putting him up at a hotel for a week after that

“I don’t know, I don’t know hopefully I can get a trailer in our driveway, our insurance company is talking about that and  getting a dumpster, down to take out the insulation in the house

 The house may have to be rebuilt from scratch.

Tanisha Lee lives on Forest Avenue Extension and she will be going home soon but, it's been an ordeal

“It was a lot of trees down and powerlines were down it was a lot especially when you have a lot of kids ,” Lee said.

Everybody is leaving with a bucket full of cleaning supplies and information courtesy of the Red Cross.
