Packers React to Hurricane Sandy
Hurricane Sandy's wrath has been felt across the country and in the Packers locker room.
"My aunt and uncle are actually living in my house right now because theirs got flooded," said Offensive Lineman Greg Van Roten.
"My little brother was sick with pneumonia so his doctor couldn't really go see him for a couple of days," added Cornerback James Nixon.
Nixon says his brother does feel better after 4 days of no power. He's only upset because his illness may cause him to miss a football game, now in his senior season.
"I just call home every day make sure every body's alright, I talk to my little brothers every day," said Nixon.
Jerron McMillian is from Newark, New Jersey, he says hurricanes in the Garden State just are not the norm and was shocked to see the devastation.
"It's unpredictable, you know, sometimes things happen you just have to be ready for the worst."
Van Rotten said his other aunt and uncle in New Jersey were forced to evacuate their home.
"We haven't heard from them so it's just like, playing that game."
He says they have not gotten in touch because cell service is spotty where his relatives live. Van Rotten says once he knows they are safe, it doesn't matter if the house is gone because family is most important.
The National Football League and Players Association announced Thursday a $1 million donation to the Red Cross to aid victims.
