    Macy’s announced on Saturday that has set aside 5,000 tickets for the Thanksgiving Day Parade for victims of Hurricane Sandy. The parade’s balloons are stored in Moonachie, New Jersey, which has been hard hit by the hurricane, but the balloons have survived. Meanwhile, the death toll in a 65-mile radius of New York City from the storm ticked up to 97, with 43 of those deaths in the city itself. Officials also said the destructive superstorm set the record for trees felled in New York and New Jersey, with 10,000 downed trees in New York City and 113,000 in New Jersey.
