Sending thoughts and prayers for those affected by Hurricane Sandy …

Queens, NY was hit with the one-two punch of not only water – but fire as well. About 80 homes were burned to the ground during the Hurricane. Hopefully, no one was lost in the blaze but it may be days before authorities are certain everyone got out alive. Click on the picture to see the video.

 

As dawn broke on the East Coast this morning, it was painfully evident that Hurricane Sandy (aka Frankenstorm) was unfortunately everything forecasters had warned it would be and sometimes more. IX Power will continue to send our thoughts, prayers and donations to the brave survivors of one of history’s most infamous storms.

NYC’s financial district really got a bath from Superstorm Sandy.

Here’s how you can help too:

 

Donate to the American Red Cross.  We have seen many news reports of the Red Cross whipping into action to mitigate the misery of people affected by the storm.

The Salvation Army had boots on the ground providing hot meals well before the storm even hit and they will be there long after. Donate directly to the Salvation Army specifically for victims of Hurricane Sandy by  texting the word “STORM” to 80888 to make a $10 donation through your cell phone. Or make a donation to the Salvation Army online.
