Sandy’s widespread destruction hit home for some celebrities.
Rosie O’Donnell shared the above photograph of what was left of her backyard, after Sandy slammed into her $5.9 million estate along the Hudson River in Nyack, NY.
“2 huge branches down — broke the fence … just saw another huge sailboat flailing down the Hudson on high white swells,” she tweeted Monday.
That was followed by, “Dock is totally covered by water.”
Later she added, “All is well here by us. Damage to the dock and flooded craft house — all fixable.”
Melissa Joan Hart also tweeted in the midst of the storm as it came crashing around her home in coastal Westport, Conn., along the Long Island Sound. “Moving the family to the basement. Too many giant trees falling. Stay safe everyone. God Bless,” the “Melissa and Joey” actress tweeted Monday.
She later updated her followers after things settled down. “Thanks for all the love and prayers. We are all good just gonna be without power for a long time. I think Halloween for my boys is a bust,” she wrote.
Jersey Shore star Jenni “JWoww” Farley was in Los Angeles promoting the reality show on Tuesday, when she posted a photo from her hometown Toms River, NJ, with the tweet, “Just was shown a picture of my town … So sorry for everyone that was affected by sandy.”
Later, during an appearance on the “Tonight Show,” when Jay Leno asked her about the house she owns with her fiance Roger Mathews, she replied, “Fixable, I want to say. It’s really, it like hurts the heart a lot. It’s really kind of devastating. But as long as like my dogs, Roger’s safe, my friends are safe, we’re just all without power.”
As for the “Jersey Shore” house made famous in Seaside, a town devastated by the hurricane, it survived the storm, completely unharmed.
Donnie Wahlberg, who lives in a New York City high-rise, wasn’t so lucky.
“My entire building is under a foot of water. Awesome neighbors all banding together to help each other! Stay safe!” he tweeted Monday night.
The star of “Blue Bloods” later posted several videos of him surveying the damage. In one, he wades shin-deep through water, as bowls and kitchen appliances float by.
After tweeting that he was “Safe & Sound on Higher Ground!” he added, “Don’t worry about me. Material things are meaningless. Check in with those you know in the storm!”
