Long line for help for flood victims

Suburban residents affected by flooding last month continue to pack aid offices to apply for relief. Hundreds waited in line for hours before the doors opened at the south suburban Family Resource Center in Blue Island Tuesday morning. The line stretched down the block.

Most of the people waiting in the line are flood victims who were hoping to receive some disaster aid.

The line also includes a number of people who need help buying groceries.
