My friend Louise that moved from Athens to New Jersey sent me some pictures of the damage near her from Sandy. There was a nurse that was trapped in the water. She had no heat and no lights. She was cold. So she started out and swam some distance. She got to where there was a truck. They picked her up and carried her to the hospital where she worked. She was so glad to get there to change into dry scrubs and to help people there.
