A group of tenants in the Cypress Hills Houses say they haven't had cooking gas in two buildings since a man threatened to blow them up Sunday.

They say NYCHA gave each apartment a single hot plate.

"With one hot plate, you can't cook for three kids," says tenant Nadine Alvarado.

Tamecia Peek, a neighbor, says the hot plate adds stress whenever she needs to cook a meal.
