Hurricane Sandy Destroys Seaside Heights, Floods New York And Leaves Millions Without Power

Filed under: Sad Sad

Lindsay Lohan was wondering why everyone was "in such a panic" about Hurricane Sandy and here's an unfortunate answer for her.

Twenty-six people have reportedly died from the "Frankenstorm" in the U.S., while 6-7 million are without power in the “the largest storm related outage in our history.”

Much of the New York City area is underwater and West Virginia has been buried in snow. Beach communities suffered the most though.

The Seaside Heights boardwalk, the New Jersey tourist attraction that provided Snooki and JWOWW with years of partying, has been completely destroyed (above).

So unbelievably sad!

New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg calls the storm "the worst NYC has ever experienced" and adds

Jason Schwartzman And Doggy Endure The Icky Rain Together

Filed under: Mama NatureDog

jason schwartzman dog walk in hollywood rain

Sunday was way too wet in Hollywood.

We realize we don't have to experience the perils of MaMa Nature and her flow as much as the rest of the country, but because of this, we become accustomed to sunny weather.

So when it rains, our bodies can't handle it. Excuse us, let's rephrase. When it pours all day and all night long, we can't handle it.

Seriously, even the LAX tunnel had a fit and flooded!

But Jason Schwartzman and his dog still decided to go out for a walk. They must have thought the gloomy weather would discourage being seen, but clearly that isn't the case. Cute dog!

Bison Die At ZooAmerica During Hershey Flooding

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadZoo

Sadsies!

Two bison at ZooAmerica are confirmed casualties of the flooding in Hershey, PA.

They were swimming, barely keeping their heads above the water. The zoo workers tried their hardest to save the animals.

A witness said:

"The water, of course, kept getting higher and higher and they were just trying to keep their head above water, and at one point they had a rope and they were just trying to hook that around the horn of the bison."

They were unable to save the bison, though.

The zoo workers stayed the whole night, caring for the animals they were able to rescue.

Check out the above video for more details and eye witness accounts.

Help For Hundreds Of Pets Affected By Floods In N.D.

Help For Hundreds Of Pets Affected By Floods In N.D.

YAY!

Thanks to the amazballz work of the NARSC (National Animal Rescue and Sheltering Coalition) over 500 pets displaced by severe flooding that has devastated the city of Minot, N.D., have been put in emergency shelters.

Losing your home must be horrible — we are so happy to hear the flood victims wont be losing their pets too!!

Shannon Walajtys, an emergency relief officer (who was one of the first the team on the ground), is happy to give this small comfort to the displaced families. She said:

“Many of the displaced residents are understandably pre-occupied with the burden of finding new homes in which to live, and the moments they’re able to spend visiting their beloved pets at our emergency shelter provide such an important emotional boost.”

We're sure it's more than just an emotional boost, it's a frigg'n a family member! But not all the owners of the rescued pets know their animals are safe. Josh Cary, team lead of the AHA’s Red Star effort explained,

“American Humane Association is providing a rotation team to care for family pets whose owners have been stranded by the flooding. Animal owners know that we will keep their beloved pets safe until reunions are possible.”

We hope they find their owners soon!

Millions Of Spiders Cover Pakistan Trees In Webs

Pakistan Tree Spiders

Ewww!

We know every creature serves a purpose on this fantastic planet, but this imagery still gives us the shivers!

Due to excessive flooding in Pakistan in 2010 that submerged a fifth of the country, MILLIONS of spiders took to the trees to escape the rising flood waters.

Pictured above are the trees that they effectively cocooned in spider webs, while seeking shelter from the water.

Unfortunately, spiders weren't the only creature affected by the flooding and 20 million human lives were also disrupted as a result.

However, remember that thing about every creature serving a purpose?

In the areas where spiders took over the trees, there are significantly less malaria-spreading mosquitos that are expected to accompany stagnant water.

Hooray for spiders! Creepy, disgusting spiders. Seriously though…good job spiders.
