ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - The wrath of Super Storm Sandy has left some New Mexican's stranded along the east coast.
"I've never seen sides of buildings ripped off, I've never seen a crane 70 stories up about to fall," said Paul Alexander.
That was until Monday.
Paul Alexander is the owner and operator of Albuquerque's 'The Party Trolley', he headed to New York City for a quick business trip. Thanks to Sandy that has since turned into an extended stay.
KRQE News 13 spoke with him over the phone Monday evening.
"I'd say the scariest thing is right now we're 25 stories up in our hotel room and the scariest part isn't the rain it's the wind because you can kind of feel the building move at times," Alexander said.
Alexander is not the only local suffering through the storm.
Jonathan Sims of Acoma Pueblo is with a large group, they were flying back from an educational trip in Germany, they made it as far as Washington D.C.
"The streets are pretty much deserted everything closed up as early as 2 o'clcok in the afternoon here," Sims said.
Both Sims and Alexander told KRQE News 13 they were actually some of the lucky ones because they were able to find hotels to ride out the storm in and were even able to re-book their flights home to New Mexico.
"Everybody is trying to make the best of it," Sims said.
