British Red Cross volunteer Ines Rocha Mohwinckel (37) was stranded in New York when Hurricane Sandy struck – so immediately pitched in to help with the relief effort. Here’s her story.
My husband and I were staying in Upper West Manhattan when the storm came in, and I started to get really nervous. The sky got darker and we could see a crane at a nearby building site wobbling dangerously. Then the power went out and half of Manhattan was in darkness, which was totally unexpected.
