I barely make it inside my house when the storm is right above us. After 4 days of the howling winds and only the light from candles, we finally see the light of day again. I open the second floor window and step outside. The dust is piled up to the second floor. I look around and there is
“I just remembered while running to the bathroom, the windows all blew in and the second my dad closed the door everything went to grey. No idea how long after that I regained consciousness, but I finally woke up in the rubble of the house and everything was just gone” said by Scott Offerman as he recollects horrific memories of the day his house went up by the Plainfield tornado of 1990. On August 28th, 1990 an F5 tornado had blown through Plainfield, Illinois with no warning or sirens. Scott Offerman’s family wasn’t the only family to lose everything they had that day, hundreds of stories could be told by families as many were affected.

Most of those homes were the beach homes that were along the beach or were in towns that were on the beaches. The winds ripped roves off homes and toppled over trees and the trees were all over the place so many homes were him by the trees or the feel over the road so people could not pass the road in their cars. Then some of the trees fell over the power lines and shut down all the power in that area. With the trees falling all over the place there was floods because the trees backed up the rivers and streams then the rain did not help because it rained for many days strait. The rain also affected the cities because the city’s sewer plants flooded.
Carrying on, I needed a cool glass of water. I slowly walked out of my tiny bedroom, and it felt amazing to get a little bit of fresh air. I am just going to say it is very bothersome staying in a tiny room while coughing up hairballs, or what it felt like. I took one turn out of my doorway and I was about to go down the hallway to the kitchen when my parents’ whom were bickering intrigued me.
Imagine coming home after a long, hard day of work only to a petite cabin shared with family. Far from the main house, over by the edge of a swamp, was where the cabin was placed. After approaching the cabin, the smell of creatures living next door and algae growing on the outside infused the space. It appeared as a sad and droopy cabin with a narrow double chimney made of clay. Wooden, rustic, mahogany-colored doors were accidently left slightly open by whomever left last, which may have attracted a furry animal (Bentley 11).
The water was at the top of two story houses. So it was hard for people to stay in their house for protection against it. Once the storm had passed and the few survivors that were left, you could see just how disastrous the storm really was. “A sea of wreckage spread in every direction. Houses had disintegrated.

According to her it was so bad that she says, "My husband said he 'll duct-tape me to a chair if I try to open the front door. " She and her husband were only one of many families who went through hurricane Irma, thankfully they lived it through to see another day, but unfortunately not everyone does. Wendell Bailey age 74, died inside his home as it burned up.

“I was putting my children to bed when suddenly my whole house began to shake violently. As I looked out the window, I saw the fire and objects had been blown up into the sky. Then, the puff of smoke from the explosion rolled up into the air and the ash started to cover the houses of the city.” What was your thought at that moment? “I was not sure what had happened, but I was very scared and did not know what to do or where to go.
There are families in tears as I look around. Half of the building was demolished and crumbled. The dust clouds in the air from the destruction are crowding around me.

As I was awakened from a deep sleep, my aunt was yelling “get all your stuff we have to leave.” I didn’t fully understand what was going on by the way I was awakened. It was five o’clock in the morning when I heard my cousin on the other end of the phone saying “we have to leave New Orleans now, the hurricane is going to hit and we will not be safe here.” I never thought I would have to pack up and leave my home because of a natural disaster. As I gather the things that would fit in the small purple suitcase I was still in disbelief of what was going to take place.
