Hurricane Sandy’s Aftermath
How you can help… Millions of people have been affected by Hurricane Sandy. If you’d like to aid the relief effort, please make a contribution to the American Red Cross.
In a matter of hours, Hurricane Sandy devastated the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. During yesterday’s storm, tens of thousands of people from across the eastern seaboard shared their experience in real-time, tagging photos with #sandy and #hurricanesandy.
This morning, as the rain tapered and floodwaters receded, millions of people began taking stock of the storm’s historic devastation, and sharing their daunting road to recovery on Instagram.
