In Staten Island, Eddie Saman has taken up residence in a volunteer-run tent city after a feeble attempt to his cover walls with blankets. While in Breezy Point, a woman carries a space heater from room to room while her storm-ravaged home is repaired.

House Approves $50.7 Billion in Emergency Aid for Storm Victims

After fierce lobbying by political leaders in states across the Northeast, the House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a long-awaited $50.7 billion emergency bill to provide help to victims of Hurricane Sandy.

The aid package passed 241 to 180, with 49 Republicans joining 192 Democrats to approve it. It now goes to the Senate, where it is expected to pass. President Obama has expressed support for the measure.

The $50.7 billion — along with a nearly $10 billion aid package that Congress approved about a week ago — seeks to provide for the huge needs that have arisen since the hurricane struck more than two months ago in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and other states.
