In the Chelsea Heights section of Atlantic City, residents spent Saturday morning sorting through their belongings and trying to determine what was salvageable.

Sabina M. Walsh, 72, had the help of her daughters to clean up the N. Richmond Avenue home she's lived in for 45 years.

Nearly all of her appliances have been destroyed. What might be salvageable lay around the outside of her house in an attempt to air out clothes and prevent mold from forming.

"Everything here, it's all gone and nobody is doing anything to help us," Walsh said. "How am I supposed to get this stuff down to the end of the street where the dumpsters are? I can't do that."
