We are okay for now but we are displaced.. Me and my mom evacuated on Sunday night. It was mandatory as you know we live near the beach. We have been in a hotel since then and my mom cant survive this. Its taking a toll on me also as I am not equipped to take care of her here.. We are doing the best we can.. Sis went to her boyfriends and took the dog and cat and i cant get in touch with her because of New York City and Long island is without Power and water and heat and everything.. I feel like I am in a war zone and that is what everything looks like.. Its the most insane thing I have ever seen .. workers are working around the clock to get things fixed but they say it could take over two weeks.. To make it worse our water supply where we live is contaminated and we cant go back yet.. We dont even know what happeend to sis's house.. The whole area is under water and there is no electric, no heat and no water and nothing so now what?? I cant afford to live in a hotel and pay for outside food.so today me and mom are going to my son;s gfriends house for a day or two and then what??
I dont even see Red Cross or anything and I have heard the National Guard is on the way and all but so far its been very very sad and devastating.. Taking it one day at a time but I am losing it day by day...praying for strength and all and that is all about I can do.
I do have internet service in hotel as they are on back up generators but after we leave here today no idea what will happen. My sons;s gfriend has power but I dont know how long we cna stay there..
Just send prayers and hope because this Hurricane has destroyed many in New York, NJ and surrounding areas.. There were 100 homes that burned down in Queens NY from power lines and well its all a mess right now and the power lines are still creating havoc.. The pics you see on the tv true and real .Even the gov. of NJ has been crying as he assess damage. Atlantic City is almost gone under water.. My home state looks like it was in a war right now in some areas and that is no exaggeration.. I am shocked beyond belief................
I am speechless as to the destruction..
Take care everyone .. will try and check in with updates if I can...
thanks for caring..
