Fame didn't matter much to Frankenstorm.

Hurricane Sandy tore through New York City and surrounding areas Monday night, causing severe flooding and leaving thousands powerless. Lots of stars—including Donnie Wahlberg, whose entire apartment was under a foot of water—felt the effects.

The former New Kids on the Block member posted Telly videos of himself splashing around his flooded East Coast home. Some of Wahlberg's kitchen appliances can even be seen floating through the room. 

Fortunately, Wahlberg tweeted that he was "Safe & Sound on Higher Ground!" 

"Don't worry about me," he added. "Material things are meaningless. Check in with those you know in the storm! Stay safe!!"

Alec Baldwin tweeted that he and wife Hilaria Baldwin had lost power and were "Possibly leaving our home to check into a hotel." 

Heidi Klum has announced that she will be postponing her famous Halloween party until further notice. "I hope you and your loved ones are safe after this devastating storm in the New York City area," she released in a statement. "For obvious reasons, I am canceling my Halloween party scheduled for tomorrow night. I hope to postpone for the near future...maybe a very Haunted Christmas? I hope everyone understands and stays safe."

Piers Morgan was impressed with the resilience of Gotham City. "Got to hand it to New Yorkers, they're tough as old boots," the native Brit tweeted. "loads of people out in Manhattan today, carrying on as normal. #Sandy"

Khloé Kardashian Odom tweeted that she was "Praying for the victims of hurricane Sandy!" A fan asked her if Lamar Odom's Queens-based family was OK, and she responded, "Yes thank God! Making our phone calls to double check :("

 "Wow...Sandy is one mean lady! Lots of thoughts, prayers and love going out to all in her guys stay strong!," Carrie Underwood tweeted

Kirstie Alley echoed those sentiments, tweeting, "oh NYC...I'm so sad for much devastation and clean up to do..Let us know how to help"

East Coast, stay safe!
