On October 29, 2012, a massive storm hit. This massive storm is Hurricane Sandy. Sandy hit mostly the East coast, but 23 US states had effects from the hurricane.

There were 111 deaths overall.  People from 700,000 homes don’t have a home anymore. Over 8 million people lost power. The cost of damage is $10- 20 billion. The flooding, snow, and wind damaged many homes and buildings. Subways in New York were closed because of Sandy’s flooding.

There are ways you can help, too! The Red Cross is excepting donations. By texting the word REDCROSS to 90999, you can automatically donate $10! You can also donate $10 to the Sandy Recovery Fund by texting RECOVERY to 52000!
