The widespread damage of San Francisco effected every race and culture throughout the city at the time of the earthquake by leaving them with one thing in common, nothing. Extending from the rich to the poor, from the Chinese to the Italians, nearly every member of society had been left with only the belongings they were able to scavenge as they fled to safety. The New York Times remarked that the destruction caused from the earthquake left nearly half of San Francisco in ruins, 50,000 citizens homeless, and a property loss of more than $200,000,000. Shockingly, in addition to the immediate damage and loss of life caused by the earthquake, as more fires spread throughout the city the total number of citizens left homeless quadrupled and the value of property lost doubled. The remaining citizens of San Francisco who united as a community of survivors of this wide-scale crisis paved the way for the social developments that followed the earthquake.
As the waters rose, they were left stranded without food or water while white women and children were toted away to safety. Refugee camps were established, families slept in makeshift tents of quilts and material that was brought with them from their houses. Even though the African Americans were also devastated by the flood, they were forced to be a part of the relief efforts and had to clean up flooded areas. The National Guard was called to patrol the refugee camps but soon began to rob, assult, raoe and even murder African Americans that were held on the levee. More than one African American man was shot for refusing to work.

Continuous monitoring of heart rate, blood pressure and ECG trends are mandatory. If intra operative MI is suspected, this emergency situation should be discussed between the surgical and anesthetic team. The main anesthetic aims in managing intraoperative MI are oxygenation, maintain hemodynamics, minimize cardiac work, treat arrhythmias, consider use of aspirin and heparin, consider use of gylceryl trinitrate, and an intra aortic balloon pump (where available). Use of intra operative TEE to be considered for diagnosis. The priorities are to detect intraoperative MI early, give effective treatment, and transfer the patient to ICU urgently for further cardiac care.

3.2 Outline the procedures to be followed if an accident or sudden illness should occur. The procedure to follow in the event of an accident would be that I would record all of the details about the incident & report/relay them to the ward manager who will then go on to notify other people. In the event of someone having a cardiac arrest, if I was the first person on the scene I would activate my alarm to make sure there are more staff available to help. 3.3 Explain why it is important for emergency first aid tasks only to be carried out by qualified first aiders.

In efforts to try and save the people from being forced out, with the help of people from all around Dallas, the community has a plan to clean up Sand Branch and give them a source of running water but in their attempts the city keeps postponing it. Regulations have been put into place by the government to keep postponing and forcing people to move out of the community. The regulations set by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) are the ones that must be met for them to stay, which are nearly impossible to meet because this is not a wealthy area that can afford to spend money. The average income of this community is said to be at average $700 per month (Savali 2016). The commissioner of Dallas John Wiley Price said that the reason why they haven’t been able to fix things is because it would cost the city “$6.8 million for flood protection, $4.2 million for water/sewer service, with an estimated
More than 3,600 homes were destroyed on Galveston Island and the added toll on commercial structures created a loss of $30 million, about $700 million in today 's dollars.” While the storm was extreme, so was the response of the survivors. Despite the unimaginable devastation the survivors faced, they immediately began rebuilding their city. By 10 a.m. Sept. 9 the Mayor of Galveston, Walter C. Jones had called an emergency city council meeting, and by the end of the day had appointed a Central Relief Committee. The newspaper even continued to publish from Galveston and never missed an issue. The first issue published was a front and back list of the dead, giving the survivors a reason to rebuild; for their lost loved ones.
Due to erosion, there has been a lot of residential impact made on the Outer Banks. For example, the highways keep eroding away and getting rebuilt over and over and storms are not helping, because during storms it starts to flood and wash the roads away (Rising Seas: Will the Outer Banks Survive?). As the erosion increases it shrinks the island, creating less space for a highway to be there or to be built (Rebuilding N.C. 12 Threatens Outer Banks ' Existence). Over time NCDT has been trying to rebuild the Bonner Bridge for 23 years now but with the storms and erosion it has been delayed. Residents of Hatteras even said “that as children people built their structures as far away from the beach as possible” however with the rising sea levels and erosion has caused them to get closer and closer to the ocean.
