Roots ripped out of the ground as a large oak tree fell toward Olga Raymond's front door. With it came a power line. Raymond had just left her one-story home in Mansfield, Connecticut. Neighbors told CNN affiliate CTNOW that a smaller pine tree had already snapped off onto Raymond's roof, startling her. She had a flashlight in hand and was on her way to a neighbor's house when the bigger tree crashed down. The 90-year-old woman -- a "spirited" bowler and grandmother of four -- was killed instantly. Across the Northeast, more stories such as Raymond's are being reported. Another tree, another town, another broken home.

"They're doing an excellent job." Score one for FEMA's attempts to come back from its infamous failure after Katrina struck the Gulf Coast in August 2005.
