America's east coast is really hurting right now. Hurricane Sandy blasted through the eastern seaboard Monday night and left a path of destruction. Now, several days after the storm, huge swaths of New York City remain without power. Things are worse in much of coastal New Jersey. Entire communities were seemingly washed off the map and thousands are homeless.
The networks of NBCUniversal will televise a benefit tonight to raise money for the Sandy victims. Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel and Sting will also perform on the telecast. The benefit is slated for tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
Jimmy Fallon and Brain Williams will emcee the event.
If you'd immediately like to give some money to help the hurricane victims you can visit the Red Cross online or you can just text "Red Cross" to 90999 and $10 will be immediately added to your phone bill. The Red Cross has also put out a call for blood donations.
