(09/27/10) BROOKLYN - Thursday will mark two weeks since a tornado swept through Brooklyn and recovery efforts are still ongoing for some residents.

James Masons says he has four tenants who were evacuated by the Department of Buildings (DOB) after the tornado struck. He says there are several steps he must take before he fixes his roof at 173 Quincy St. As he continues to work on getting it fixed, his tenants are being forced to stay with the Red Cross or family members.

The DOB says landlords must hire an architect and an engineer to assess the work that needs to be done and department officials will then re-inspect the buildings.
