Lindsay Lohan’s strange Twitter reaction to Hurricane Sandy

The arrival of Hurricane Sandy has brought on a variety of reactions from celebrities. However, Lindsay Lohan's reaction to the storm heading up North America's east coast is to ask everyone to please calm down.

"WHY is everyone in SUCH a panic about hurricane (i'm calling it Sally)..? Stop projecting negativity! Think positive and pray for peace," Lohan tweeted Sunday evening.

U.S. President Barack Obama has already declared a state of emergency in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, leading Lohan to rename the storm Hurricane Sassy.

Other celebrities have made jokes about the incoming Category 1 hurricane (Olivia Wilde wrote, "Were there this many hurricanes before Twitter? #justsayin"), but the overwhelming response has been one of caution. Even renegades like comedian Tracy Morgan are taking it seriously. "Everyone on the east coast stay safe and batten down hatches!" he tweeted.

And there's plenty of reason to be so careful: Meteorologists say this is a "worst-case scenario," with winds at 135 kph. When Hurricane Sandy blew through the Caribbean, it reportedly lead to 65 deaths. The storm has not hit Canada's east coast yet, but the government is urging Maritimers to prepare for up to 72 hours without power.

According to LiLo, reports like these are just people spreading negative thoughts. While it's always helpful to look on the bright side, huge megastorms should be dealt with a little realism, too, as some bloggers have argued.

"You can't fault a girl for reading 'The Secret' and believing that positive thoughts are enough to counter one of the biggest storms to ever travel up the East Coast," wrote Jenni Maier on Crushable in response to Lohan's tweet. "Nor can you blame her for getting confused between a hurricane caused by nature and the concept of peace ... If only we would stop the wars, the weather would stop the hurricanes."

"Praying never hurts, but since forecasters are calling the 85 mph winds 'life-threatening,' it's probably not a bad idea to brush up on emergency safety skills too," wrote Perez Hilton.

It's great that Lohan is living by the "Every cloud has a silver lining" mantra, but with Hurricane Sandy, we're pretty sure the clouds outnumber any silver linings.
