The scene at Associated this afternoon

As @Finitor noted in a follow-up tweet: "Situation I observed is more about people making calm sensible use of unspoiled discards, NOT desperation."

As noted earlier, the store here at East Eighth Street was hit hard by the storm surge Monday night. There are unconfirmed reports of looting here too.

I walked past this Associated at 9am on Tuesday morning after the storm. Someone definitely got in there. One of their doors (blue or green) to the left of the main storefront on Ave C had been kicked in and there was a good amount of food on the floors. Looked like it had been ransacked. While its certainly possible the storm broke the door and the water knocked food over, the general consensus amongst us looking in was that it had been broken into.
