Ridgewood Storms

Superstorm Sandy (2012)

Trees were toppled all over town, taking out electric, telephone, and cable wires and damaging cars and homes.


And then it snowed.

But we coped.


Downtown stores were open and the coffee and pastries, warmth and company were great. People helped each other, hosted people in their homes or went to other towns to help.


Our Lady of Mount Carmel opened a 24-hour warming center staffed with its youth. And the Library was open for a few hours each day, until power was restored.
