Our own Eric Silver went to pick up a family member from Sheepshead Bay. He reported quiet streets but a lot of seniors without power with nowhere to go. He also found a gas station on Avenue P and Coney Island Avenue where, in his words:

“An angry mob with gas cans is gathering, and the police have cordoned it off and are standing around doing crowd control. apparently they were waiting for gas from 8pm – midnight last night. Then the owner said a new shipment is coming in soon, and they all watched him come out and raise his prices by 40 cents “

This first photo below is the prices listed before the owner came out and announced a new shipment coming in soon.

The next photo was taken after the owner changed the prices on the gas after announcing the new shipment.
