NEW YORK (AP) — A Superstorm Sandy relief fund is being created just for residents of the hard-hit New York City borough of Staten Island.

Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Borough President James Molinaro say the fund will help residents displaced from their homes.

Details are being announced Friday near the Staten Island Ferry terminal.

Molinaro told the Staten Island Advance newspaper that the devastation to the borough's coastline was unbelievable. He says the money raised for the fund in the borough will be used only there.
