Several of you have emailed asking about Nana's safety in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. She and her family are safe and well, if a bit waterlogged! Nana appears in this video from PBS, around the 0:45 mark, describing the flooding as the Hudson River rose under the onslaught.
Watch Sandy Aftermath Affects Millions in New York and New Jersey on PBS. See more from PBS NewsHour.
Thanks to all who inquired and who sent in the video link!
