Video From Red Hook, Brooklyn: Residents Plead for Help as Living Conditions Worsen

As more than a million people continue to cope with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in the dark, in the cold and with little food, David Lee Miller visited one of the hardest hit areas in Brooklyn, NY -- the neighborhood of Red Hook. Miller told America's Newsroom host Bill Hemmer that the residents there aren't worried about voting tomorrow; they're just worried about surviving.

Roughly 5,000 people in a community of about 11,000 live in public housing in the Red Hook neighborhood, where residents say they've seen very little help on the ground despite the thousands in need.

For one interview, Miller and his crew

climbed up 10 flights of stairs with no lights, littered with debris and human waste. They were told rape had already taken place there that day.

In the apartment of Maritza Delgado, a gas oven heated the space ... a makeshift method that is extremely dangerous, to say the least. The only food she has had has been supplied sporadically by the National Guard.

"Somebody has to help us, somebody in the world has to do something ... it's not right for us to live this way," she pleaded, in tears. "Nobody's here, nobody's here to help [...] It's terrible, it's just so terrible."

The National Guard is expected to arrive soon to distribute food.
