Jenni "JWoww" Farley ap peared on the "Tonight Show," and host Jay Leno asked about the house she owns with her fiance, Roger, in Toms River.
"Fixable, I want to say. It’s really, it like hurts the heart a lot. It’s really kind of devastating," she said. But as long as like my dogs, Roger’s safe, my friends are safe, we’re just all without power."
Vinny Guadagnino told MTV that Seaside Heights had be come his second home, while Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio sent thanks to the "heroes" who were working to help. Sammi Gian cola called the impact "devastating."
Guadagnino tweeted that Sta ten Island, N.Y., where he lives, "looks like war zone" and posted a picture of a downed tree.
He, Farley and DelVecchio asked their Twitter followers to donate $10 to the American Red Cross by texting REDCROSS to 90999.
