Frankenstorm Brings Plenty Of Scare, Halloween Canceled For Many
"It's the worst I've seen," said David Arnold, from Long Branch, N.J., in a New York Times report. "The ocean is in the road, there are trees down everywhere. I've never seen it this bad."
The far-reaching storm has East coast residents, normally planning on trick-or-treating, costume parties or haunted attractions, just trying to get back home. Once there, they hope to find a roof over their heads, power and food – elements of life they might normally have taken for granted.
Telling scary stories, watching horror films and playing pranks as part of a traditional Halloween may never have more meaning though, as residents recount what actually happened to them during the storm as we see in this video.
Still, in other parts of the country, Halloween events continue.
On the West Coast, California has a number of theme park attractions open including Knott's Scary Farm at Knott's Berry Farm, Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood, Disney's HalloweenTime and Mickey's Trick-or-Treat Party at Disneyland Resort.
