Well, this is kinda dumb

From Eyewitness News:

So many people are still suffering and a long way from recovery in the wake of Sandy, which makes this story all the more puzzling.

Why are millions of pounds of food and water just sitting in tractor trailers in Brooklyn, unused, when so many people could use them?

FEMA tells us they have stockpiled millions of pounds of food and water in the event of another storm hitting the area.

The agency sees it as prudent planning, to one truck driver the massive inventory has complicated his life and raised some questions.

Trailers at FEMA's staging center are loaded with food and bottled water.

Hundreds of them, were mostly delivered after the storm.

William Horton of Chattanooga Tennessee arrived 13 days ago with 84,000 pounds of ready to eat meals.

But those meals and most of the supplies in the trailers are not for the victims of Sandy, instead they're being held in the event New York is hit by another disaster in the near future.

So ... where are their electeds? Renaming tunnels and bridges after their personal saints?

Maybe it's because the Gambino crime family, which traditionally controlled trucking in the garment industry, wants their cut before these trailers move an inch.
