    Singer Cyndi Lauper lost her uncle George Stathis due to Hurricane Sandy and her wrath. His body was discovered at his home in Queens, New York. Stathis, 90, was too afraid to evacuate his Rockaway home. Lauper was left confused as to why relatives did not spring to action to retrieve him and take him to safety.

    She said, "I lost my Uncle George in the hurricane. He was old. He didn't want to leave his house. I was in Chicago, and I called and said, Why did you guys leave him?' and they just didn't think it was going to get that bad."

    So sorry for your loss, Cyndi.
