In conclusion, Hurricane Sandy had many effects on in the Caribbean and the East Coast of the United States.

Description of Attack. The attack on Pearl Harbor began at 7:55 in the morning. The entire attack lasted for one hour and fifteen minutes. 2,403 people were killed in the bombing including 68 civilians. The attack caused a lot of damage to buildings and other structures and killed many people.
Afterwards, Flight 77 blasted into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. The passengers on Flight 93 managed to attack the hijackers; however, they crashed and there were no survivors. To comprehend the effects of September 11, 2001, (9/11) we must look at precise areas. We begin by focusing on the loss of life “the death of almost 3,000 people in the attack was a loss to New York City and to the nation” (Bram, Orr and Rapaport 2). Statistics show the ages of the victims extended from two to 85 years; also, according to CNN, “75-80 percent of the victims were men”.
Over 1,000,000 were made homeless and 100,000 civilians were killed in this raid. On both sides bombings and strikes were made on centers of production, transportation routes, and other facilities causing a great deal of harm to the civilian population. By the end of the war over 50,000,000 civilians had become casualties of war. The destruction
The Passengers of United Flight 93 On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, members of al Qaeda hijacked and crashed four American airliners. This attack on American soil resulted in nearly 1.4 million pounds of debris. The financial impact in New York alone was over $30.5 billion dollars (“22 Facts About 9/11”). It lead to three thousand deaths, including the deaths of first responders such as firemen and policemen (“9/11 Attacks”). This was the largest loss of life by a foreign attack ever on American soil (“22 Facts About 9/11”).
Tearing a mile-wide, 13-mile path through the city, the tornado destroyed over 7,500 homes, 18,000 vehicles, numerous churches and schools, injured over 1,000 people, and claimed 161 lives (Onstot 2013). These statistics only count the physically wounded who required medical care and only the deaths of those whose physical wounds caused death, not the untold number of psychologically wounded survivors nor the death of those who took their lives, mistakenly believing it was the only way to relieve the pain. The tornado damaged communications
More than 70 wobblies died were killed. They begin their speeches, but after a short amount of time, it was not a matter of free speech. No one knows who fired the first shots but it was a very bloody battle hence the name “Bloody Sunday”. There were 200 citizen deputies and
The boat was swept down to Baton Rouge, where it was with 48 dead males and 3 dead females. The cost of damage was estimated to be at least 1,260,000 dollars, which would be about 30 million dollars in modern times (Hall, 2014). In the meantime, the tornado killed 317 people, but the official death toll may not have included slaves. The total amount of people who got injured was 109 people (CNN Staff, 2014). Furthermore, many people were left homeless because of all of the destruction caused by the massive tornado.
The loss was a big hit to the nation, as explained in United States History: Modern America when it stated, "September 11 was the first attack against Americans on American soil in fifty years, since the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor in World War II. In total, more than 3000 Americans died in the attacks, more than died at Pearl Harbor"(Lapansky-Werner, Levy, Roberts and Taylor 675). This shows the toll of loss the attacks had on the country. Also, people who lost loved ones in the attacks struggled greatly, like explained in “Empty Sky” when it says, "I want a kiss from you lips / I want an eye for an eye / I woke up this morning to an empty sky" (Springsteen 5-7). The lines explain the sorrow and anger felt by people who lost loved one on September 11th.
There was an estimated 1833 people killed by the whole hurricane. Out of those people that died 40 percent of them died from drowning, 25 percent of people died from trauma, 11 percent of the people died of heart conditions and the other 24 percent died of other or unknown causes. The impact this hurricane had on families was crazy. After this hurricane, the population of New Orleans went down by 254,502 people that 's a decrease of over half of the city 's total population. Throughout the whole hurricane over 6000 homes were
Tuesday morning of September 11, 2001, United States awakened to the tragic events occurring in New York City. The nation came to a stop as hijacked planes collided into the country’s beloved Twin Towers, crumbling down within the matter of seconds. 15 years ago, the United States faced a major terrorist attack, with over 3,000 deaths and evidently bringing out the rage within the citizens. However, targets of revenge for this situation are faced by Sikh Americans, who still experience discrimination with their physical appearance in the nation today. Within the United States, the media limits the coverage Sikh Americans experience on a daily basis, and essentially undermining the discrimination that many of them still face today.
It was on August 6, 1945 at 8:16 a.m. Japanese time when tens of thousands of lives would perish. The Enola Gay which was an American B-29 bomber dropped the world’s first deployed atomic bomb over the Japanese city of Hiroshima. Consequently, the explosion caused would devour about 80,000 people, but many more would later face death because of the radiation. But aside from death another 35,000 persons were injured, and at least another 60,000 persons would be dead by the end of the year as an immediate effect from this cataclysmic event. Furthermore, the bombing of Hiroshima devastated the city; it wiped out almost 90 percent of the populous.
