The entire eastern seaboard of the USA has been impacted by Hurricane Sandy’s wrath, and that includes late night host Jimmy Kimmel.

The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” star was looking forward to returning to his hometown of Brooklyn, NY for a week of shows, but it looks like that won’t be happening at this point.

Earlier today, Kimmel tweeted, “Though it pains us to do it, JKLfrom #Brooklyn tonight is cancelled. I’m disappointed too, but we want you to be safe.”

Meanwhile, an insider added that Jimmy “didn’t want anyone getting hurt trying to get [to the show].” As for the rest of the week, they’ll take it “day by day.”
