New York native Buddle thinking of family and friends impacted by Hurricane Sandy

It has been impossible to escape the images of the effect that Hurricane Sandy has had on the East Coast and on Tuesday, LA Galaxy forward Edson Buddle -- a New York native --was quick to send his prayers to those affected.

Two-thirds of Buddle's hometown of New Rochelle, New York experienced power loss, but aside from downed trees, the city was not affected as severely as other parts of the state. After speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Buddle was quick to send his well-wishes to those on the East Coast. 

"My family is safe, I hope that everyone else is okay," said Buddle. "I know it was one of the worst storms that people have experienced and my hopes and prayers go out to everyone on the east coast."
