Hey, I’m in an area that’s in danger of being affected by this storm as well (its been raining non-stop for the past 3 days!) I’m also from the east coast & used to this kind of thing. Chicbabydoll is right, the most important thing is to have food & water! Think canned goods you can open up and eat with no prep, etc. Also make sure you have candles, flashlights, batteries on hand & lots of stuff to stay warm in! As long as you have food, shelter & some form of light you’ll be fine. :)posted over 4 years ago

I live on the east coast in Pennsylvania, and it is quite bad. The power has been out since 9 o’ clock last night. My family has to stay at my grandmother’s house because there is no heat or anything. Two trees fell right across the street from me. I hope everyone is safe.posted over 4 years ago
My heart goes out to you guys! We’re experiencing nice weather here in California. Really hard to imagine the serious effect Sandy has on everyone in the East Coast. It must be tough going through it and some of you losing homes and belongings… Take care!posted over 4 years ago
I live on Long Island, and the most important thing that we did, in my eyes anyways, was that we stocked up on ice (to put in coolers with all of our perishable foods), gas for our cars (gas stations are really being hit up and most are running out of gas because people need gas for both cars and generators), and we made sure everything outside was tied down safely! A friend of mine who lives very near by actually lost her trampoline! It flew over their fence and got stuck, and they had to cut it down. Adios, childhood :/ but we definitely could’ve been hit a lot worse, and I’m very glad my friends and family are safe!posted over 4 years ago
Thanks for the responses! Unfortunately, I’ve asked too late but still had a good supply of food. My experience with Hurricane Sandy was surreal in my eyes because this had never happened in New York before. We experienced flooding up to 4 feet and it was just really bad. It’s something that I’ve always watched on the news but never seen in real life. Aside from property damages and power outages, there were also the cases of looters taking advantage of stores that didn’t have power or security. Some people just disappoints me.
@Chicbabydoll: I’m doing well Thank you! New York is in recovery mode. So hopefully it’ll be back to normal soon.
@tova: Thanks! Next time I will definitely be more prepared for a natural disaster.
@stylelove07: Yes i know how you feel! It was horrible without electricity! Hopefully you’re doing great as well!
@slimskii: Thanks, yeah there were a lot of property damages mainly near the coast, and there was also about a hundred houses gone due to a fire.
@nikkinectarines: Wow, i can actually imagine that. I’ve actually seen a photo on facebook, where a trampoline was blown away. Haha maybe it was your friend’s. I’m glad you’re safe as well because I know this was an unexpected one!
