Sandy storm causes massive damage

Amateur video footage taken during the ‘Frankenstorm’ of last night has captured what looks like a scene out of ‘2012‘. (video below)

The ‘home made movie’, filmed on a phone or Flip Cam type device, is taken from inside, and shows an overview of the street. All is fairly calm, until out of nowhere a tree collapses, then a few seconds more several others are ripped to shreds. Then after that, a fire breaks out at the end of the street.

Onlookers huddled close to the window often shouting “Oh my God”. Yes it’s a little over the top, but you would be witnessing this kind of destruction all of a sudden. It’s one of the most harrowing videos I’ve seen so far.

Last night we featured some street footage shot by a filmmaker from NYC as the eye of Sandy was passing over. It’s been a difficult few hours for everyone on the east coast, with now more than 7 million people without power. Earlier this afternoon the Huffington Post experienced an outage along with other top entertainment websites, including Tumblr.
