Three people were arrested at a gas station, three at a Radio Shack, and two at a clothing store.

The Rockaway Peninsula was severely damaged by flooding and violent winds during the storm. Surges left Rockaway Beach inundated, and an out-of-control six-alarm fire destroyed more than 80 homes in the Breezy Point section of the peninsula Monday night.

The area was in the Evacuation Zone A delineated by Mayor Michael Bloomberg over the weekend. But many residents did not evacuate.

The theft incidents happened between Monday and Tuesday.
