On Tuesday 29 October, amidst the debris, a lone shark was spotted swimming in the front garden of a flooded home in Brigantine Beach, New Jersey. The photo spread quickly, sparking US star Sean Kingston’s intervention when he sent a warning tweet to this Twitter followers saying: “Heard somebody seen a shark just swimming in there neighborhood..because of#Hurricanesandy this is crazy stay safe people!”
After last year’s Hurricane Irene failing to live up to its hype, American citizens were left unsure of the damage this year’s storm would bring.
If a shark weren’t enough to send them packing, a spot of TV might be. Reporter Chip Reid, a CBS News national correspondent, was almost wiped out by a rogue wave. Reporting from Ocean City, Maryland, the reporter and his crew were enveloped by a wall of water that rose behind them as they filmed, before swiftly knocking them to the ground. “Fortunately, we did manage to save the camera”, said Reid.
To top it off, a giant crane has been pictured towering precariously 75 feet above the streets of New York as a result of the damage caused by the storm’s high winds.
The storm is believed to have claimed 35 lives and caused an estimated $50 billion worth of damage.
