Roxanne Boothe stands outside the Sam Burt Houses, where she is president of the tenants association, and shouts that "we have hot food" to alert residents of a donation of food on Saturday in Coney Island, N.Y. The complex, which has been without power since Monday, flooded during superstorm Sandy. "We have no heat, no water, no electricity, it's dark in the whole building," said Boothe.

About this Article

Falling temperatures on Sunday put more people at risk in a region already battling gasoline shortages, stubborn power outages and spasms of lawlessness in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. With temperatures in the 30s and more than 700,000 people still without power in the area, some who were planning to run in the canceled New York City Marathon instead headed to Staten Island on Sunday morning to volunteer to help storm victims.
