A New Bedford man is part of a FEMA response team, aiding the people of New Jersey left devastated by Hurricane Sandy.  Mike McCormack is a disaster assistance employee with the Federal Emergency Management Administration.  He’s based at a naval station at Colt’s Neck, New Jersey, about 20 miles from the Jersey Shore.

McCormack tells WBSM News, he hasn’t been to the shoreline yet where damage is the greatest, but he has seen lots of disruption in and around Colt’s Neck.
