    Flooding in Broad Channel Oct. 29, 2012

    The suburban New York hamlet of Sleepy Hollow has donated a fire truck to the storm-wrecked New York City community of Broad Channel.

    The New York Post reports that village trustees in Sleepy Hollow voted last week to "sell" the fire truck to Broad Channel for $1.

    Sleepy Hollow Volunteer Fire Department officials delivered the truck on Saturday. It was packed with sleeping bags, clothes, winter coats, canned food and cleaning supplies.
