The devastation from Hurricane Sandy, in New York, New Jersey and beyond.
For some reporters who live and work there, it has really hit home.
For days it's been the top story on, "Inside Edition," seen here on ABC 6.
Anchor Deborah Norville said, "Over 4 million people in the area out of power, taking fresh water from the streets, not sure where their next meal is going to come from. These are not things we expect to see in a city like New York."
It isn't just a news story. Most of the 175 staff members from "Inside Edition" live and work in the New York City area.
Norville said, "I think one of the reasons that television is sort of the communal hearth, when these big events happen, is we know that the people who are impacted, are just like us."
Deborah Norville was here in Providence as part of a promotional appearance for ABC 6 and its clients. She said, "We're all thrilled. When 'Inside Edition' came back on ABC 6, whenever it was, a-year–and–a–half ago, we were thrilled because this is a really good station. And tonight is a celebration!"
ABC 6 Reporter Mark Curtis said, "And you can see Deborah Norville and inside edition every weekday night here on ABC 6 at 7:30. In Downtown Providence, I'm Mark Curtis ABC 6 news."
