Sandy, the superstorm

It’s coming! A storm with a powerful magnitude. That can change someones life in seconds. This happened for many people in the Northeast when Superstorm Sandy made landfall on October 29th.

“Go home!” That was what my resident director said to my friends and I. My heart was beating fast. When I was at home and watching the news my heart looking at a roller coaster under water it made me want to help out in any way. It was also so hard to wrap my head around the fact that a storm could cause so much damage.

Really? Here some facts about the hurricane. Super Storm Sandy was the deadliest hurricane in 2012. Sixty eight billion dollars was the estimate cost of the storm which was the second costliest hurricane behind Hurricane Katrina. Sandy affected 24 states and 7 countries in its life span.
