Actor/singer Donnie Wahlberg’s apartment was flooded as a huge storm battered the U.S. on Monday (29Oct12).
The New Kids On The Block singer – brother of actor Mark Wahlberg – posted footage of the damage online, showing the kitchen of his home in New York immersed in a foot of water.
The star is filmed by a friend sloshing through the floods, opening cupboards and surveying the damage in footage obtained by TMZ.com.
However, Wahlberg manages to put on a brave face and when the friend points out his pots and pans, he jokes, “We can cook with all this power that we have.”
The singer later took to Twitter.com to reassure his fans, writing, “My entire building is under a foot of water. Awesome neighbors all banding together to help each other! Stay safe!… Safe & Sound on Higher Ground! Don’t worry about me. Material things are meaningless. Check in with those you know in the storm!”
An estimated seven million U.S. residents are still without electricity and at least 16 have died as a result of the tropical storm.
