Some people from Northern Nevada are being effected by Sandy.
I had a chance to talk with a teenager from Reno, who's in New York. Olivia Lowden is attending school in Connecticut.
Her school is on a mini trip to New York. She is actually staying the night in Manhattan.
I asked her to describe the weather this evening.
"The weather right now is crazy. The sky is white, There's no cars anywhere and it's just windy. It's so rainy, like the rain doesn't even come down on you, it hits you in the face because it's so windy. People are running around buying water. Last night, I was in Times Square and they were putting sandbags around the Apple store and everything was closing down."
Our thoughts and prayers are with Olivia. We will stay in touch with her.
Volunteers from the Northern Nevada Chapter of the American Red Cross left for the east coast on Sunday.
They will spend three weeks helping evacuees with shelter, food and whatever other services they need.
The Nevada Air Guard's 152nd Wing is also helping. Their C-130 Hercules and crew left from California this morning to pick up rescue boats, trucks and several airmen from the California Air National Guard.
They'll head to Charlotte, North Carolina to help with relief efforts.
While volunteers head east to help, flights in and out of Reno have not been impacted.
A spokeswoman for the Reno-Tahoe International Airport said so far, all flights are operating on time.
"It's important that passengers call ahead to their airline or log onto the airline's web site and check the status of the flight, prior to coming to the airport. Even if flights are leaving here on time, the could be effected if they are connecting to the east coast or flights beyond."
We also talked to NV Energy.
A spokesman there said they are prepared to send people east to help with any power outages.
They'll know more on if that will happen in the next day or two.
