The First Sandy Images and Reactions on Twitter

Hurricane Sandy hit the northeast on Monday, October 29. By Tuesday, October 30, photos and reactions to Hurricane Sandy were filling Twitter feeds with unimaginable images and news of destroyed beach towns, flooded homes, felled trees, evacuations and power outages. NJTV curated that busy stream of storm preparations and Sandy’s aftermath to share an overview of what people in New Jersey posted from homes and work places. One of the most-cited Tweets that day was from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie: “I don’t give a damn about Election Day after what has happened here. I am worried about the people of New Jersey. #Sandy.”
