NEW YORK - A Mission native is breathing a sigh of relief after his apartment was spared damage from Hurricane Sandy.
"It was windy and rainy outside," Eric Holguin said.
Holguin said he stayed with friends in Brooklyn, away from flood-prone areas.
"If you live along the river in Brooklyn, that part is flooded," he said.
"Right now it's gray skies ... the sun is trying to break through, but it's gray skies," Holguin said.
"A lot of broken branches, it looks like a tree toppled over," he said.
The storm's death toll as of Tuesday morning was up to 33. Many of the victims were killed by falling trees, the Associated Press reported.
