Nature's wrath visited on Teaneck

Never saw a devastation like this in our life. Just got power back last night after more than 26 hours. Thousands still without power. Two young fathers in our community were killed tragically a few blocks away on their way to synagogue by a freak accident - leaving behind large families. It's beyond sadness.

No hurricane we ever saw left such devastation. Hundreds of massive trees were knocked over  like twigs. Streets are still blocked by fallen trunks and branches all over town. Metal sheds were thrown off like toys leaving neatly stacked storage exposed. Cars and roofs were smashed by trees and destroyed.

We cannot exaggerate the extent of the violent devastation all around the town. Thank God we got through it all basically intact.
