I Survived Hurricane Sandy on the East Coast 10-29-2012. This Storm Brought record rain, wind, flooding, low pressure, and all over chaos to the east coast. NYC streets turning into flowing rivers, the barrier islands in south jersey were not match when the ocean met the bay over the islands. Winds toppled trees across several states. Power was out to millions. I survived, and came out alive. The storm was over 1000 miles wide and lasted over 3 days with the eye making landfall near Atlantic City NJ on the evening of October 29th 2012.
