The East Coast is now recovering from the destruction of super storm Sandy. To date, 74 deaths have been confirmed in the U.S. and 8.2 million individuals across 20 states without power. Hundreds of thousands of individuals have been directly affected by the impact of severe floods causing closed subway services and blocked roadways and high winds damaging homes.
The economic damage could reach between $30 billion and $50 billion, making Sandy the second-costliest U.S. storm after Katrina in 2005. As the storm’s effects become more widespread, more people will need our help. We have set up a Disaster Relief page for those who would like to make a donation to multiple nonprofit organizations including American Red Cross, AmeriCares, Salvation Army and World Vision who are delivering much-needed emergency supplies and services.
