(Newser) DNA Info today spotted signs sure to warm the cockles of New Yorkers' hearts: "FEMA center closed due to weather," they read. The signs were taped up at disaster recovery centers in the city, meaning that residents who trekked there for hurricane relief were out of luck because of the coming nor'easter.

"The storm is coming. We don't know how hard it's going to hit us," said a woman in Coney Island who discovered that the FEMA facility there was closed this morning. "I need some help now." (Meanwhile, light snow already is falling, notes the New York Post, with the storm expected to last through tomorrow morning.)
