Timelapse Shows Long Line at Brooklyn Supermarket

Shoppers waited in long lines at a Trader Joe’s supermarket in Brooklyn, New York, on March 13, as coronavirus-related panic-buying continued around the country.

Food markets across New York City’s five boroughs were overrun by unnerved residents looking for supplies, with many finding shelves emptied of rice, tomato sauce, peanut butter, toilet paper, and other items before they got in the door, the New York Post reported.
