About 200 evacuees sheltered in NJ tent complex

New Jersey officials say about 200 people are being sheltered after Superstorm Sandy in a complex of tents at the Monmouth Park racetrack. ¬†The state offered to take in people in from shelters elsewhere this week after it became clear that only one of two “micro-cities” put up at the park would be needed for utility and law enforcement workers helping with the recovery. ¬†Department of Human Services spokeswoman Nicole Brossoie says she expects the population to drop as more people are able to go home. The structures have heat, floors, hot water and catered meals.
