The superstorm Sandy slammed the Northeast of the Unites States late on Monday, triggering massive blackouts and causing flash flooding from New Jersey to New York City.
Gusting winds as high as 80 mph caused destruction and 13-foot surges through the streets of Lower Manhattan.
“You have to stay wherever you are,” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg pleaded late Monday.
Up to 10 people were said to have died in Sandy’s destructive path, while more than 4 million people have been plunged into chaos without power — including a number of celebrities, such as Jersey Shore star Snooki.
Celebuzz has compiled a round-up of star Tweets about the mammoth storm dubbed “Frankenstorm.”
