Hurricane Sandy caused millions of dollars in damage and wreaked havoc on the Jersey Shore, but apparently Dita Von Teese was also a victim of the natural disaster.

According to a lawsuit filed by the burlesque babe, one of her shows in New York was canceled last October due to the storm.

In her complaint obtained by TMZ, the entertainer claims Momentous Insurance Brokerage failed to get her the appropriate insurance to cover expenses.

The show must have been a doozy because Dita says she spent $96,920 in props, costumes, hotel rooms, and more, but all was lost when the gig was cancelled. Irked at the oversight, Ms. Von Teese says she should have been issued non-appearance insurance, which would have covered the natural disaster.
