Westchester, Hudson Valley volunteers provide lifelines in New Orleans

Members of the National Guard and police officers from Westchester and Hudson Valley are in New Orleans providing much needed relief for survivors of Hurricane Katrina.

A National Guard member with family in Yorktown says the devastation in New Orleans was worse than anything she saw in Iraq. The soldiers are providing the only lifeline between supplies and survivors.

A group of police officers from Woodbury in Orange County were patrolling the waters to help establish law and order. The officers said they felt they had a debt to pay after the outpouring of support given to New York after 9/11.
