Protesters shout down Gov. Christie at Superstorm Sandy event

Protesters angry that hundreds of Superstorm Sandy victims have still not been able to return home four years after the storm shouted down Gov. Chris Christie as he visited a storm-damaged business in Seaside Heights.



Leaders of advocacy organizations for Sandy victims as well as several individuals whose homes remain damaged stood up and shouted the governor down at the event on Friday.



They refused to let him speak for about five minutes.



While they were yelling, Gov. Christie and several aides huddled with others who had come to the event. They took their contact information and promised to call Saturday to address their outstanding issues.



The governor was able to resume his speech afterward. He says that he is also frustrated that not everyone is home yet four years after the storm.
