Bangalore: An international Sikh forum recently announced that gurudwaras in America have been turned into shelter homes, as a measure to support the people affected by superstorm Sandy. Arrangements have been made in Gurudwaras for providing food, water and shelter, says American Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (AGPC).

"As the gurudwaras are often situated in large compounds, having enough food and water in stores, we would like to help the needy in this one of the biggest crisis in the areas, currently facing the impact of the storm," said the AGPC in a statement issued from Freemont, reports PTI.

Sandy, one of the biggest storms ever to hit the country, battered New Jersey coastline, an area where numerous Indian families reside. Floods swamped large number of areas in New York and New Jersey and an explosion at a sub-station on the east side of Manhattan's Midtown left 500,000 people without power.
