The Mob Wives stars recorded their heartfelt message Friday as they surveyed the extensive damage wreaked by the superstorm, noting that residents are desperate for help and that the Red Cross will not be able to visit the area until Saturday.
“Whatever you guys can do, we’ve been hit really hard,” pleads Gravano. “Donate blood….. things you don’t need in your everyday life.”
“The Red Cross can’t make it out till tomorrow,” says Rizzo. “People here are in desperate need of everything.”
Residents of Staten Island have been very vocal about their feelings of isolation and the lack of assistance they believe they’ve had, with some residents calling the area “the forgotten borough.”
One resident told CBS station WCBS, “We’re gonna die! We’re gonna freeze! We’ve got 90-year-old people!”
Natvel Pritchard, told CBS, “Though people don’t talk about Staten Island much, people are here, a lot of people are hurting, so it’s upsetting.”
