Hurricane Sandy has left high rise buildings in New York without power. The lifts in the buildings as high as 30-storys have become non-functional, thus making the lives of thousands of people, especially the elderly, very difficult.
Along with those who were complaining about the power cut, there were also people who were still talking about the positive aspects. Daniel Lechmon who has to particpate in Sundays marathon is one among those. “It (taking stairs) is a good workout. I am running a marathon on next Sunday. So it is a good training,” said Daniel, according to AFP News.
After the deadly Hurricane Sandy hit the city that never sleeps, New York city is trying to recover from it. The authorities were trying to clear the flooded subways for use by the commuters. The authorities were appealing to people to go for car pooling, and take buses as metro rail or subway services will take time to start operations in some areas. Three out of the seven subways that were flooded with water, have been cleared.
