Just like hundreds of other New York City residents, Michelle Williams and Jason Segel have been left homeless after Hurricane Sandy hit hard on Monday, Oct. 29.
The couple's apartment building in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y., is reportedly underwater after the superstorm struck the East Coast, destroying communities and leaving residents in the tri-state area and beyond without power or homes.
Just a few months after Williams and Segel, both 32, moved into their shared apartment with Williams' 7-year-old daughter Matilda, the renovated 19th century warehouse, which sits on the water's edge, suffered major damage. According to The Daily Mail, "the building and the surrounding roads flooded as they were directly in the path of the storm which rampaged over the eight-foot breakwater."
A FEMA truck was seen outside the warehouse this week, dumping belongings and valuables that were ruined in the flood. And according to an article about the neighborhood in TIME magazine, Red Hook's electricity has been shut off following Sandy's destruction. Also Fairway, the grocery store located underneath the warehouse, was forced to dump nearly all of its contents.
TIME reported that, as the week stretched on, a "stench of meat beginning to rot hung over the [store's] muddied rear entrance."
Williams and Segel are reportedly residing in the Brooklyn brownstone she shared with her ex, the late Heath Ledger, in the Boerum Hill area.

Oh Frankenstorm. What say you? To play Carnegie hall or not to play Carnegie hall. That is the question.
I keep seeing pictures of the flooding going on and it hasn't even started raining yet. Scary.
"The wind began to switch. The house, to pitch. And suddenly the hinges started to un-hitch..."
Everyone be safe rather than stupid. We're figuring out where we're going to stay.
Praying for everyone on the East. ♥
