Hurricane Sandy: help provide emergency aid to people affected

“The southern tip of Queens was the worst hit part of New York. Waves tore apart boardwalks, and swept through streets, causing floods more than five feet (1.6 metres) deep. Cars floated onto lawns. As the waters retreated, they left behind urban sand-dunes. A fire, started by the storm, destroyed more than 110 homes in Breezy Point. Across the city, at least 22 people lost their lives during the night of October 29th-30th, out of at least 50 Americans known to have been killed by the storm. At least 70 people were killed by it in the Caribbean.
