In the wind: Experts say thousands of Downtowners affected by toxic 9/11 dust still missing from Zadroga Act rolls

Kimberly Flynn of the  9/11 Environmental Action group is raising awareness among Lower Manhattan residents and residents of downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights, and DUMBO that they may be eligible for healthcare under the Zadroga Act, as their illnesses could be caused by toxins from the World Trade Center site.

Dennis Lynch writes in the Downtown Express that many people who were harmed by the fallout of the attacks still may not realize  that help is available for them.

Thousands of those eligible for the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund haven’t signed up for it.
