Days after Sandy, finding relief at shelters
Louisa Givens went four days without eating. Any food she had, a piece of fruit, the last few slices of bologna, she cut up and gave to her daughter.
Givens, 19, lost electricity on Monday, as Sandy's fierce winds struck Long Island. As the days went by, it started getting colder. She bundled up her two children in jackets, hats and gloves and lay with them in bed to keep them warm.
