It's a state of emergency, superstorm Sandy is here.

And this is the biggest storm we've had in the past 10 years.

She is destroying anything that gets in her way.

It's dark and scary; my whole neighborhood is dark,

All but the telephone wires. They give off a few colorful sparks.

Looking outside my window, all I see are falling trees and leaves.

My window is open, I can feel a cool breeze.

News reporters hit the streets with camera crews;

America's heart freezes once they witness the damage.

Police and firemen are working hard, trying to respond.

Candle's slow burning, children finding it hard to go to sleep, they're tossing and turning.

Some people won't be able to cook dinner, some will go to bed with their stomachs burning.

Every home is silent, but wind outside becomes violent.

Winds up 60, 70, 80 maybe even 100 mph.

It seems like I have been without power for days, but it's only been a few hours.

A good number of people had to go to work during this storm; I know they are feeling sour.

Halloween was here, but Sandy gave some people the biggest scare they will ever fear.
