A firefighter will risk his life to save more than humans during this hurricane (photo taken from Pinterest):
My power went off in Staten Island where I live, and it just came back on, but may go off again, so I hold my breath. Staten Island was badly hurt on the south shore. Three years ago, I moved from Midland Beach, on the south shore, to Port Richmond, on the North shore. I now live on high ground, on the third floor, in a brick building, but it was still scary. I thought it might blow the screens off my windows, and maybe break a window, but it didn’t.
On the radio yesterday, they were saying that Con Edison said that power would be back on in Manhattan and Brooklyn in 4 days and in the other Burroughs in a week. Since I live in Staten Island, I was preparing for a week without power, but it came back on, after being off only about 18 hours. You can’t believe everything you hear.
