As hurricane Sandy ravished the Northeast on Monday night, leaving half of Manhattan without power and much of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New England under water, celebrities took to Twitter to express their sympathies and well-wishes for those in trouble.
The tweets came from New York natives such as Lady Gaga as well as those from much farther away, such as Emma Watson. And, while some stars (I’m looking at you Ricky Gervais and Mindy Kaling) used humor to diffuse the situation’s tension, it’s clear that everyone has the safety of their loved ones’ in mind.
Sending every ounce of my love to New York

We sent our audience home just to be safe. But we are doing our show tonight anyway. Should be fun. #LateNight

You know NYC is under hurricane crisis when there’s not a single cab on the road. #Frankenstorm

Back in Miami now. Missed the storm. I’m praying for everyone on the East Coast. I hope everyone is safe!

This “Sandy” who’s on TV all the time and is blowing the entire east coast, I assume she’s a Kardashian right?
— Ricky Gervais (@rickygervais) October 28, 2012
9 months from now hopefully we will have some cool Hurricane Sandy babies!
— Mindy Kaling (@mindykaling) October 29, 2012
Everyone on the east coast stay safe and batten down hatches!
— Tracy Morgan (@RealTracyMorgan) October 29, 2012
To everyone affected by #sandy my thoughts are with you. Hope everyone is ok. Xx
— Emma Watson (@EmWatson) October 30, 2012
Well, not quite everyone. I think (hope) Ms. Lindsay Lohan is feeling sheepish regarding Sunday’s premature hurricane tweet:
WHY is everyone in SUCH a panic about hurricane (i’m calling it Sally)..? Stop projecting negativity! Think positive and pray for peace.
