Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Irene made its way up the East Coast leaving devastation in its path, Irene has claimed over 20 lives so far. In New York State there are towns that are completely gone and will have to start over, many people have lost everything. People may be wondering why this matters, but it personally affected one of our long time player of Hogwarts Live, Tom. He lost his entire house due to the massive flooding in New York State, his entire county was put in a state of emergency because it was completely flooded out, emergency services even had a hard time rescuing people because of the rapidly rising water levels. Luckily him and his family got out safely. This hits close to home for me personally, being Tom and I live so close to each other and attend the same college. I know many players on this game are also good friends with him. I have talked to Danilo about having money from HL donations going to help Tom and his family in their time of need. He said that if players would like part of their donations to go to Tom's family, to owl him(Danilo) after they donate.

You can also donate to other families in need through the Red Cross:

No one around here expected Irene to do so much damage in the middle of New York State, our area here, the storm kept moving away from and we were in and out of Medium and High zones, while places like NYC were in the Extreme zone and they didn't really get hit much at all. I know other states got hit just as hard, and I hope anyone's families in those states are alright also.

This is why I wish I had a job and could help donate to HL. I live in NY state, but I live where its safe, to the west of Rochester. I only got winds, and did not get any thing from the actual storm except just windy winds.

I hope he is safe, and gets everything back. Best of wishes, and Blessed Be.

I'm in Massachusetts and it didn't do a whole lot here; I didn't have power for most of Sunday and there are some trees down but overall nothing too serious. Best wishes to Tom and his family.

Up here in New Brunswick, Canada we got quite a bit of wind because we were so close to the sea. No power for over 29 hours in creepy high winds that nearly crushed my house!

Stupid Irene, shoo away!!!!
Best of luck Tom!

I hope that Tom and family are ok and that things get better for them soon. Most of my family lives in NYC and on Long Island and I was terrified when the storm was in the area near my loved ones. I wish I could send money, but as am broke, I will send my prayers and best wishes. May the God and Goddess bless Tom and all others who were affected by Irene.

I'm surprised Irene did so much damage....

I live in Houston, Texas so I'm used to hurricanes.
