I was in south Florida when hurricane Andrew hit. We were renting a house Kendal. One block south the destruction was devastating with two story houses reduced to one floor. We were extremely fortunate as a renter and were able to move in a week. With natural gas service, hot showers were possible the day after the storm hit. Still, the experience shook me for many months to follow. The people in Sandy’s way are not so fortunate. Some have lost everything and do not have the luxury of moving away. Life is very unsettling when the basic needs of modern day life are ripped out from under you. No heat with nightly temperatures near freezing. Struggling to survive on a daily basis. Total uncertainty of what tomorrow will bring. Please find it in your hearts to do whatever you can to help these people now.
