After Hurricane Sandy ravaged the East coast on Oct. 29, millions of people in New York were left without power, water and in deep devastation. Chelsea Clinton, Katie Holmes and Melissa Joan Hart are some of the many victims of the disaster.
Hurricane Sandy has left certain parts of the states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut in a state of irreparable destruction, and downtown Manhattan has been left without any power, while the New Jersey boardwalk has been completely destroyed. By Nov. 2, many people are still without power and water, including Katie Holmes, Chelsea Clinton and Melissa Joan Hart.
Katie and her daughter Suri Cruise were forced to evacuate their Chelsea apartment in downtown Manahattan, as reported by The Huffington Post. The stylish mother and daughter were in their building when the power went on Oct. 29, and were forced to leave the following day when the water was shut off.
Another resident of the building said, “Suri might be used to helicopters and chauffeured cars, but once the storm hit we were all the same. They had to walk from the 12th floor, with no lights, like everyone else.” We wonder how Suri felt about that!
Chelsea, her husband Marc Mezvinsky, and their dog Soren have stuck it out in their $4 million dollar Flatiron apartment without power, and are managing by eating canned foods and lighting candles. She tweeted “‘Marc, Soren and I are at home with candles, kindles and canned food! Any must-read recommendations for waiting out a storm?” on Oct. 29.
Things are much worse, however, for Melissa, as she and her husband Mark Wilkerson were left without power and water in their Westport, Conn. home with their three young sons Mason, Brady and Tucker.
She tweeted “When you are living without power, it seems to be all you can focus on. Takes all day to make preparations for the dark and cold ❄” on Nov. 2, and later added that she could be waiting another week for power to return.
The cast of Jersey Shore have also spoken out about their devastation about how badly the Jersey shore area has been hit, as Jenny “JWoww” Farley tweeted “Crying over the damage the jersey shore and my town received. Legit boats are on the roads I used to drive. I cannot believe this,” on Oct. 30.
Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy.
