On Tuesday Peruvian ambassador to the United States, Harold Forsyth, said there had been no reports of Peruvians killed or injured, after Hurricane Sandy hit the northeast coast of the US.

There are over 300,000 Peruvians living in this part of the country, the ambassador said.

“Although the consulates in New York, Boston, Washington and Patterson are closed due to the arrival of this hurricane, we have been able to keep in touch, and thank god, there have been no reports of Peruvian deaths or injuries,” Ambassador Forsyth was quoted as saying by Peru21.

The storm has killed at least 21 people in the United States, and left millions without electricity, CNN reported.

The region’s public transportation system was also heavily hit. It could take days before electricity and public transportation are fully restored.
