Hurricane Sandy: Hollywood Reacts as East Coast Braces for 'Frankenstorm'
Hurricane Sandy is fast approaching the east coast.
On Sunday, New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg ordered a mandatory evacuation of some 375,000 people who reside in coastal areas. The subway system is also scheduled to shut down beginning at 7PM ET.
Millions of people in target zones that include Philadelphia, Washington, Baltimore and Boston are also preparing for the worst.
All weekend long, celebrities in Sandy’s path and elsewhere have been sharing their hurricane-inspired thoughts (some serving as comic relief) on Twitter.
