My parents lost their house, many of my aunts and uncles who live close by them have also lost their houses. Many of my friends are homeless, my sisters job burned down...

But they're all safe. Now just to assess the damages and start rebuilding.

Everything that happens, be it the good, the bad and the downright miserable define who we are.

So sorry to hear that, Breella.. hopefully they can all get back on their feet before too long.

I didn't think it'd have this big an impact, but I've heard that about forty people so far have died.. including a woman in Toronto after getting hit by a street sign.

As for around here, near the Maine border in New Brunswick.. we're getting loads of wind, thunder, lightening, etc.. and some rain here and there.

Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.

I too hope everything is okay.

I am sorry for the losses of your family and friends, Breella, but at least they're safe. You can replace everything but lives.

Down here in Australia we are hearing about it in the news - it's absolutely awful.

That certainly looks a lot like a little shark, and you can see the tail swish through the water...

We are getting hit here right now. The thunder sent me shooting 20 feet out of bed from a deep sleep. Windows are rattling. We are under rain fall warning for 60mm of raim or more.

Breella I am so sorry to hear about your friends and family. Very happy to hear they are okay though.

Well SW coast of BC clearly didn't get hit but I had a momentary panic when I heard about NY as my cousin was living there for a bit but I think she's moved back for now her friends are still there though which must be scary. I know one girl on the east coast and I haven't heard from her....not sure if that's good or bad. I know there was a guy in New Jersey who had an extension cord out his window and was letting people charge there phones so everyone's helping each other out which is nice to know.

I'm writing this from Southeastern Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia. We're ok! Schools were closed for a week, some still are. We got about 4 or 5 inches of rain, and the highest wind gusts were about 81 mph where I live. Part of split rail fence is down, and our little 3 sided shed flipped over. Yikes! Thank goodness though all the trees avoided our house and the barn, some people around this area are still without power; almost a whole week! I didn't lose power at any time during the storm. Hope everyone's okay from the storm!

Brella, I'm glad that your family is okay. I'm sorry about the loss of the homes and buildings.

4-5 inches of rain? Sounds like a fall week in BC, we get it all the time!

I will guarantee you don't get this all the time, or anything close. Why would you make light of it? Seriously?

My son and a group of friends, some from Philadelphia, loaded up here in Northern Va with all sorts of supplies, gas, etc, and drove into NJ and Staten Island this past weekend to help. They were truly humbled by what they saw. The need is huge, people are suffering, have lost everything, and another storm is coming. Chances are their plan for next weekend will be much the same.
