Water poured down endlessly by the black sky. Lightning illuminated followed by a heavy roar of thunder. It started to get so windy that I couldn’t keep myself upright anymore. I stretched my arm trying to reach for Souleymane but I couldn’t feel him. Waves tried to swallow the boat.
The strong winds spread debris across the land scape of Texas as it ripped through the structures destroying anything in its direct path. The strong winds accounted for some of the damage but the wind wasn’t the only factor that caused property damage. The main cause was from the flooding/storm surge. As talked about in the previous paragraph the surge was the leading cause of damages. The estimate cost in damages are expected to reach 160 billion.
The area within the Gulf of Mexico, the Florida Straits, and towards Europe is very turbulent and swift. This can erase any evidence of wreckage from planes or boats fairly quickly. During the summer there are very many hurricanes and severe summer storms that occur often and can also be the cause of plane/boat crashes or missing evidence from crashes. According to (Emily, 2014, p. 3) “The unpredictable Caribbean- Atlantic storms that give birth to waves of great size as well as water spouts often spell disaster for pilots and mariners. (Not to mention that the area is in “hurricane alley.”) The topography of the ocean floor varies from extensive shoals to some of the deepest marine trenches in the world.
The act opens with the characters discussing about the terrible storm raging at the sea. “It is a high-wrought flood. I cannot ‘twixt the heaven and the main/Descry a sail”. The storm creates a frightening and unpleasant atmosphere which stays throughout the whole scene. It also foreshadows Iago’s evil intentions and conflict that will happen later on.
According to Smith, “These are people who do nothing all day but sit and indulge on this strange plant.” This a strong example because imagine being lost out on sea, longing to get back home, having experienced some horrific things. To eat something that would make you forget all your pain and misery sounds like the greatest thing. However if they were to succumb to this temptation they would never return home. As Homer states, “‘All hands aboard; / come… or you lose your hope of home.’” (103-105) The temptation of giving up is strong, but in the end if they were to eat the plant, they would never see their families again. Smith states, “Although Odysseus does not fall victim to the temptation of the Lotus Eaters and is successfully able to haul them off and lock them away, it is significant that the food itself is not enough to lure him from his intended course.” This can be supported with when Homer says, “I drove them, all three wailing, to the ships, / tied them down under their rowing benches,” (101-103) Once again Odysseus has to rescue his men, and not give into the temptation of forgetting his pain and
THE TEMPEST – SHAKESPEARE 1. How does Shakespeare indicate the level of chaos in the first scene of Act I? This opening scene certainly contains spectacle, in the form of the howling storm tossing the little ship about and threatening to kill the characters before the play has even begun. The play begins with a “noise of thunder and lightning”. The first word, “Boatswain!” immediately indicates that the scene is the deck of a ship, and the characters rush frantically in and out, often with no purpose.
The only way that they were going to be free from there poor lives is Coyotito’s future and the knowledge that he would have gotten. Everything had revolved around Coyotito throughout the book. And the one time that they don’t focus on Coyotito, he ends up dying. So that is why they threw it back in the ocean, they had no use for it
Time passes as Pi continues to progress through his ordeal, alone at sea with only Richard Parker by his side. He soon comes to the realization that he saw “my suffering for what it was, finite and insignificant” (Martel 223). The suffering of Pi on the the boat shatters his naive thoughts that, in the scope of the entire world, his torment is meaningful. His dilemma triggers the development of his character through causing him to doubt his existence. As the perpetuous, monotonous cycles of day and night progressed, Pi’s food and water rations begins to run dry and his vision deteriorated.
The crashing of the waves thumped the boat on all sides like an oceanic drum leading to death as we made our way to the beach. The constant buzzing of the motor with the slamming of the waves made the journey seem like eternity. There would be nothing that could prepare us for what happens next. People stuffed their last meal into their mouths as the boat pitched and rolled like a frantic child thrashing about in the waters of the choppy and wallowing sea. Comrades bumped into one another, I was being pressed from all angles.
Recalling on the days when I was a kid coming here, remembering all the different colours from pinks to blues and greens it all felt like a fantasy. The brush of reality settled on me like a cold breeze on a frosty day, the coral was in no shape from when I was 15 in 2042. The coral was cold greys and lifeless blues, there was less coral from what I remembered. I knew this was supposed to happen with all the bleaching happening but I never expected it to happen so soon, astonished I knew it was to late to fix anything now. The coral was so weak and brittle, with only a little movement of water it withered away into a fine dust of calcium carbonate shells and skeletons.
Booth’s painting is a seen of mass destruction and the brutality of Mother Nature. On September 21, 1989 hurricane Hugo hit the shores of Charleston’s Battery. Before the lights went out Booth was able to capture this magnificent scene. In the painting, the scene is set in the middle of the ocean overlooking the houses on the shoreline of Charleston. Big and beautiful antique houses watching as the waves come crashing in on them.
The passengers adrift faced cold water, drowning, exhaustion, or no life jacket. After a few hours, 10 ships, trawlers, fishing boats and torpedo boats came to rescue the passengers, some were unconscious but alive. Some were far beyond alive. The admiralty were quick to blame turner, but they provided no escort for Lucy or anti sub patrols. Turner avoided blame.
Upon the swallowing waves, over the boat came, descending madly as it crashed upon bricks of water. Sea foam pelted at the sailors like bullets, fire billowed from the mast as those scrambled upon their last dredges of life to protect themselves. The last of the mast came crashing into the water. Far beyond, waves lapped at the edges of sandy beach. Fog rolled swiftly over the rustling palm trees, weaving low upon the ground as the passings of a storm began to reach the island.
Swish, drop, wish those are the sound of a horrible storm that will blow you away. A wet storm that happened in Galveston, Texas in the Gulf of Mexico. To begin with, this story is about a wet storm that happens to be a circular is built with wind, rain, and power. A hurricane can reach winds to about 155 mph and only starts if it is by or on wet areas. The hurricane can destroy anything in it’s path and will not slow down until the wind and storm cools down.
