Yoko Ono - Yoko Ono Invited Hard-hit Pals Into Her Home During Storm

Yoko Ono did her part to help out during superstorm Sandy last month (Oct12) by opening the doors of her New York home to hard-hit family and friends.

John Lennon's widow was holed up at her apartment in The Dakota complex in Manhattan as heavy winds and rain battered the Big Apple, and she reached out to offer relatives shelter from the superstorm.

She says, "I was there; luckily my part of the town was not so damaged. I got a call from my son and he said, 'It's not very good downtown, could we come and join you?' Of course, of course! There were many friends in trouble and so I tried to help them."

Millions of residents on America's East Coast were left without electricity or hot water in the wake of Sandy, and Ono admits the experience was an eye-opener.

She adds, "Sandy was a kind of (an) education for us, because we never thought a natural disaster would happen in New York - New Yorkers are a little bit proud about themselves."
