Christine is a Hurricane Sandy rescued survivor. She lost her car and the whole first floor of her home. Her home has no heat or hot water. The washer and dryer, water heater and gas furnace were all flooded and need to be replaced. Please help, no donation is too small.
Christine's Hurricane Sandy Story
I tried evacuating Brigantine 12 hours before the storm hit at 7 in the morning but the incoming high tide had already washed out the causeway road to the bridge and I had to turn back. My car got me home safely through flooded streets only to see the street in front of my house turn into part of the bay 20 minutes later. Thankfully our wonderful fire department was able to evacuate me at low tide by boat (that is me in the picture) before the next high tide hit. I rode out the storm in a shelter and spent three nights there until it was safe to return to my house. When I returned I found that my car had been under several feet of water and the whole first floor of my house had been severely flooded, damaging everything.
Today I am cooking Thanksgiving dinner on a hot plate, thankful to God that I am alive.
