NY-area residents fed up with more bad weather

A nor'easter is hitting the tri-state area with another round of wet and very windy weather.

On Long Island, two cars collided while driving on a slippery road.

The victims' injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

For a lot of people, another storm is the last thing they want to deal with today.

Many workers around the city that work on buildings, are taking cautions for the possible 50 mph winds later today.

Federal disaster relief is on the way after the last tornado in Brooklyn and Queens on September 16.

President Obama declared the area a federal disaster, clearing the way for federal funds to pay up to 75 percent of the damage. The cost of cleanup from that storm has been an estimated $27 million.

"It was terrible what people went through with this," said one Brooklyn resident.

With more bad weather sweeping through the New York area, residents are worried.

An onslaught of hail pelted areas of New York and New Jersey earlier this week, and sheets of rain caused flooding in Brooklyn.

The city will receive those funds but FEMA has not yet determined if residents and local businesses will receive money from the storm damage earlier this week.
