NEW YORK – Weeks after Super storm Sandy hit the East Coast, thousands of residents are still waiting for repairs.

The wait is getting old.

The “Rapid Rewards” program, run by the city and mostly funded by FEMA is anything but rapid.

It’s supposed to speed up basic repairs like restoring electricity, heat and water; things to make homes livable again but, the pace seems to be slower than planned.

FEMA officials say they understand the frustrations.

FEMA plans to deploy thousands of contractors to eventually repair at least 200 homes a day but we bet tensions will continue to rise through the this learning process.

Anger that will probably stick around long after the physical damage is repaired.
