As a result, nearly every citizen of San Francisco was left jobless and unable to care for themselves or their family. In addition to the sudden skyrocket in unemployment, a large sum of San Francisco's refugees in need of urgent care could no longer wait for municipal or federal support and began relocating in available sources of aid such as Oakland.

World War 1(WW1) is one of the most bloodstained, unpleasant, wide-spread, and history-altering war ever to occur in human history. Many people know this, however, many are not aware of the important factors which impacted the Great War.

Hence, it is imperative one understands the role the Lusitania played during the Great War.
All things considered, even though the Great Flood caused a lot of damage and devastation, it was also the cause of a major political change which in the long run was probably better. The flood changed the way that many states provided relief from natural disasters and the responsibility of government in assisting the victims that were affected by the disasters. The flood also changed the way that people lived, due to the fact that it destroyed multiple houses and towns. The Great Flood of 1927 is classified as one of the worst natural disasters of the 1900’s because of how many towns it destroyed and displaced when the MIssissippi overflowed into 11 states from Illinois to Louisiana. The flood was especially terrible because of how long it lasted, which was about 4 months.

Farmers did everything they can to get water, which progressed, into lobbying and breaking the law. L.A. was also the “one major city” that is “logically tied into the project.” However, L.A. did not even need the water which ties in to Reisner’s statement about transporting water to unneeded places.
People in most of Mesopotamia didn’t help create the laws, Hammurabi and Shamash did. Punishments for the people were unfair and ended many lives or ruined lives because they made one mistake.
