    There's relief in sight for stranded New York City residents: Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday the National Guard and FEMA will deliver one million hot meals and bottled water to areas most affected by the hurricane. While the city's electrical company, Con Edison, said power should be restored to Manhattan by this weekend, other parts of the city could remain without power for longer and be stranded. Staten Island in particular took a particularly harsh hit from the storm: roughly 113,000 residents are without power and are not expected to get it back for 10 days, while the city's main transport to Manhattan, the ferry, is closed.
