Hurricane Sandy Devastates East Coast
On October 29, 2012, I was on pins and needles worried about my family on the east coast. Hurricane Sandy was causing destruction for the people on the east coast. My mother in-law lives in Baltimore Maryland. She called a day before the storm hit. She said that she had went out and bought can goods, water and batteries for her flash lights. She also froze containers of water to keep her food in the refrigerator cold just in case the power went out. I was a little at ease but still worried sense she lives alone. My mother in-law fared pretty well. She only had a little basement flooding. My Uncle who lives in Harlem New York also fared well.
That is not the case the people living right on the coast. Atlantic City New Jersey was devastated when hurricane Sandy hit. There are still millions people living without electricity. New York was hit hard subways were flooded, this shut down the city. The City of New York was thinking about continue the New York marathon, but that plan did not go head. What were they thinking? To have all those runners risking lives running through all that destruction was utterly ridiculous. I’m wondering how this will effect Election Day. The people who have lost everything will they still go to the polls on Election Day. Hurricane Sandy is a wake up call to everyone to ready for natural disasters. That means having a plan.
