Steve Buscemi - Steve Buscemi Flabbergasted By Hurricane Sandy Devastation

Former New York City firefighter Steve Buscemi has become the latest celebrity to chronicle the devastation of Hurricane Sandy by taking a camera crew to Rockaway Beach.

Hundreds of homes were damaged or washed away completely by last week's (29Oct12) storm and the actor admits he was stunned by the sheer magnitude of the disaster while filming a news item for Katie Couric's new U.S. talk show Katie.

In the piece, which aired on Monday (05Nov12), the Reservoir Dogs star trudged over sand as he visited locals who were struggling in the wake of the storm.

He said, "Block after block after block is just filled with the beach... It's unbelievable. I've never seen devastation like this in one concentrated area."

Fighting back tears as he surveyed a horizon of broken houses, the actor said, "I really don't even know what to say... This is a whole community just wiped out."

Buscemi spent the weekend (03-04Nov12) with relief support group Friends of Firefighters touring the areas worst hit by Sandy.
