On October 30th, 2012, several storm fronts off the east coast of the United States of America banded together to create what has become known as the Frankenstorm; a rare weather event that has culminated in the worst storm to hit the east coast in history.
The hurricane at the heart of it, Sandy, had already wreaked havoc on several lower Caribbean nations, causing widespread death and destruction. And now the destruction continues in parts of the United States, with severe power outages, evacuations, fires, building collapses and flooding still causing major problems. Reports of loss of life and extensive damage to property and infrastructure continue to emerge, culminating in a repair bill that is climbing rapidly towards being the highest for a natural disaster in American history.
Following successful fundraising efforts in the past, fandomaid is launching a new campaign to raise funds for any and all areas/countries/regions that have been affected by this series of extreme weather events.
