More than 7 million people were left without power as Superstorm Sandy drenched the East Coast overnight Monday.
Instead of waking up to updates via TV and radio, Twitter became the go-to for getting news as well as putting out personal statuses of storm survival.
Here are some of the reactions (as well as photo and video) as people survey the damage of the storm on Tuesday morning.

Lisa Rinna had no shortage of celebrity guests come out to celebrate her 49th birthday on Thursday night at her and hubby Harry Hamlin's Los Angeles home.
Joined by her usual group of gal pals – including Denise Richards, Maria Menounos, Nancy O'Dell, Holly Robinson Peete, Garcelle Beauvais and Angelina Jolie's stylist Jen Rade – Rinna treated her 30 attendees to a Mexican-themed fiesta produced by Good Carma Studio in her backyard.
Kitchit chef Meg Hall was on hand to present a generous menu, which included shrimp and guacamole tostadas, chorizo-stuffed squash blossoms, shishito peppers and key lime pie shooters.
"Lisa's daughters and dog were in the kitchen a lot," a source tells PEOPLE. "There were some special items made for her daughter Amelia, [who doesn't eat gluten]. The kitchen was the gathering spot for most of the other guests, too. Garcelle and Denise were in there most of the evening, chatting about their kids."

Lisa Rinna's lips may look fine and dandy today, but when she recently underwent surgery to correct those plump puckers, her hubby Harry Hamlin feared the turnout would not be so pleasant.
"Lisa could look weird for the rest of her life," a worried Hamlin said by his wife's beside in a clip released exclusively to PEOPLE. "She must be freaking out. I can see on the doctor's face, his look of concern … this could be serious."
After Rinna's doctor said his patient's lips were "not healing very well," as he tried taking out her stitches, a concerned Rinna looked to her husband for reassurance. "Help me," she says in the clip, which will air Nov. 10 on the season finale of Harry Loves Lisa on TV Land. "Now what? What do we do? What do I do?"

More names of stars set to appear on The Celebrity Apprentice were dropped Thursday during Donald Trump's interview with the co-hosts of The View.
Dionne Warwick, LaToya Jackson, Lisa Rinna were all mentioned by Sherri Shepherd to Trump, who appeared in segment to chat about his reality show and a possible run for President.
The mogul himself added José Conseco – whom he called a "real piece of work" – David Cassidy and Meatloaf to the list.

Lisa Rinna's mouth has attracted plenty of attention over the years – not all of it flattering. But one person who had no issue with her famously puffy pout? Her husband, Harry Hamlin.
"What got me about Lisa was her eyes, not her lips," says Hamlin, who married Rinna in 1997. "So I spent most of my time looking at those."
Hamlin says he didn't notice as, over the years, Rinna's top lip became swollen and bumpy – the result of scar tissue that formed around silicone injected into the lip when she was 25.
"Whatever change took place was so gradual, it never registered for me," says Hamlin, adding that when kissing his wife, her mouth always "felt soft and supple."

She swore she'd never touch her infamous pucker again, but on Aug. 26, Lisa Rinna did just that – surgically reducing the size of her upper lip.
"My lips started to define who I am," Rinna, 47, tells PEOPLE about why she decided to undergo the procedure. "That bothered me."
Public reaction to her plastic surgery confession last year also upset her. After finally admitting that in 1986 she had silicone injected into her upper lip – an impulsive decision she made with a girlfriend and likens to getting a tattoo – Rinna says, "I took a big hit for being honest. It gave everyone online permission to lambaste me. It hurt my feelings."

Twitter etiquette comes easier to some celebrities than others.
Earlier this week, Al Roker made headlines when he posted pictures on his Twitter page taken with his cellphone while he was doing jury duty at Manhattan Supreme Court. Fail! The Today show weatherman ended up apologizing to court officials for breaking the rules.
And he's not the first star to raise eyebrows over a tweet. Let us recount our favorite examples of celebrity TMI (too much information) on Twitter.
Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13): The car just arrived to take us to the airport. Taped to the seat in front of me is a sign: "Taylor, don't forget your retainer. Dad"..Nice.
Omarosa from The Apprentice (@omarosa): correction: the dog is walking me* I can barely keeps up * i hope he poops soon or I am going to be late
What's the Word ... Uninhibited?
Lisa Rinna (@lisarinna): now that the hubby is tweeting 24/7 as i am will we need to start having twittersex? is there such a thing?
Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley): Although no one has asked I like this new name for a vagina..A POLLY WOG..yes I tried that term out today and got good feed back..YOU?

Say this for Lisa Rinna: She has loose lips as far as her thick lips are concerned.
"That's the pink elephant in the room," the actress, 45, said on Monday's Today show. "This is the first time I have told what I have done to my lips."
It all started 23 years ago, said Rinna as her husband, former L.A. Law star Harry Hamlin, watched from the wings. "I had silicone put in my top lip, not the bottom lip."
