How has hurricane Sandy affected the East Coast?
Like many fellow celebrities, Lindsay Lohan has taken to Twitter to offer her perspective on the “Frankenstorm” that slammed the Northeast of the Unites States Monday night.

“WHY is everyone in SUCH a panic about hurricane (i’m calling it Sally)..? Stop projecting negativity,” she wrote on her Twitter Sunday. “Think positive and pray for peace.”

In fact, the 26-year-old also created the hashtag “#hurricanesassy,” which soon had its own Wikipedia page.

Since Lohan’s tweet, Hurricane Sandy has triggered massive blackouts and flash flooding in New Jersey and New York City, leaving many people stranded as all transportation systems have been shut down indefinitely.

Up to 10 people were said to have died in Sandy’s destructive path, while more than 4 million residents are currently living without power — including a number of celebrities, such as Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.

“Ahhhhh our power went out,” she tweeted Monday night, adding, “Winds are crazy.”

As of Tuesday morning, 16 storm-related deaths in the U.S. were confirmed. Sandy also killed 66 people in the Caribbean.

According to Joseph J. Lhota, the Chairman of the Metropolitan Transit Authority, the subways are now flooded to historic levels.

“In 108 years,” he said in a statement, “our employees have never faced a challenge like the one that confronts us now.”
