Trees come crashing down in Hellertown
"I was sitting on the couch reading and I heard something," said Ray Follador.
The sound was a giant tree that uprooted and fell onto Follador's Hellertown home.
"Everyone is alright, damage to some shingles, but everyone is alright," Folladar said.
Toppled trees clogged roads took down utility poles and knocked out power but Sandy's surge wasn't as bad as some in Hellertown feared.
"We got lucky the water didn't flood but we have quite a few trees down," Tom Henshaw, Hellertown's Public Works Director said.
Sandy's strength did leave a trail of devastation throughout the Lehigh Valley.
A huge fallen Oak blocked traffic along Rt.873 in Washington Township, Lehigh County, while a web of bark busted Sandy Khalyl's 93 year old parents home in Upper Saucon Township.
"The car port mainly took the hit," Khaylyl said.
"It's devastating what has happened here," Lochlann Mcvvory said.
With hundreds of thousands of people without power the search for food takes on a greater importance.
The drive through time for this South 4th Street Allentown McDonald's drive through was 30 minutes.
It's the only place. Went through the city nothing else is open," Jean Seifert said.
The same went for coffee inside this South Whitehall Township Wegmans.
"My Mom came at 6 they were closed so I had to come back out to get it," Maggie Sewards said.
There are still thousands of people without power, some are in shelters and many more have a massive cleanup job..
So Sandy's strength may be leaving us but in no way is her memory.
