This made people think they couldn 't be hurt by one. On the day of the hurricane the island flooded and Isaac told people to stay in their homes, but almost all the houses collapsed. When Isaac figured out the storm was a hurricane, he tried to warn as many people as possible, which saved a lot of people. I believe that Isaac was both a hero and too slow to react. He was too slow to react when he didn 't know that it was a hurricane until a few hours before and told people things that got them killed.
The storm flooded whole streets in the suburban areas, shutdown subway lines, left millions of homes without power for weeks, closed major airports, and resulted in the evacuation of over 370,000 people in the city (Dolnick NYTimes). Experts believe that the storm also created mini-tornadoes causing even more untold damage that totaled to 15.8 million dollars in damages (Dolnick NYTimes). This storm, that stuck about one year before Sandy, was many New Yorkers’ first experience of a storm that violent. When Irene made contact with New York, it was downgraded to a tropical storm, not a hurricane. This storm is important because it resulted in many policy changes in New York’s legislation in terms of storm preparation and preparedness.
Furthermore, many people were left homeless because of all of the destruction caused by the massive tornado. A lot of boats, hotels, houses, and churches were demolished, so people did not have a structure to go to for shelter. There was also no Red Cross in the 1840’s to help, nor did they have much help from other states to rebuild their community (Hall, 2014). In essence, the
Dr.Cline began to become terrified of what the storm was becoming capable of and began warning Galveston residence. But it was too late, very few got out of the city in time. The wind blew the water out of Galveston bay and into the city itself. In effect, the storm 's trajectory made galveston the victim of two storm surges , the first in the bay, and the second from the Gulf. Many men and women began furiously chopping holes in their parlor floors to hopefully admit water and to anchor their homes in place.
Following the tragic event, the Water and Sewage Board in New Orleans ordered taller levees to be constructed. Hurricane Betsy in 1965 caused leaders to redesign the levee system and the responsibility of levee construction was placed under the United States Army Corps of Engineers. Once again citizens of New Orleans started to reconstruct their city after another natural disaster. Only forty years later Hurricane Katrina, the unfortunate event that was due to the failure of levees to withhold water, left many homeless, dead and looting for survival. Not only did the levees fail the people of New Orleans, but their government also fell short of supplying the desperate citizens of the city with aid and support.
The Town of South Amboy was devastated, after it was struck by super storm Sandy on October 29, 2012. The town of South Amboy lost basic services and first responders were working to their full capacity in order to meet the town’s need. There is a Senior assisted living facility in the town of South Amboy near the shore area, the facility housed approximately fifty residents. The view is beautiful from there; however, due to the proximity to the ocean, it’s also a dangerous place due to flooding. The magnitude of super storm Sandy obligated everyone in the facility to evacuate in order to stay alive.
So I did what they told me to do, and followed my navigation’s I had. I didn’t think about really anything except, gold, and getting land for Spain. While we were on the expedition my navigation’s were wrong, so we ran into multiple storms. The storms were very powerful and had huge waves that came crashing into our ships. Most of the crew died from the storm, and most of our boats we had were destroyed.
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.
August 11th, several countries issued storm warnings, hurricane watches, and hurricane warnings. The storm had still not hit Jamaica, governor Jeb Bush issued a state of emergency declaration because of the impending danger of the oncoming hurricane. Florida has many amusement parks as a tourist attraction. Due to the impending danger all parks were shut down, including Disney World. This was the second time in existence that Disney ever closed the park, the first being another hurricane.
Federalism is one of the most important and innovative concepts in the U.S. Constitution, although the word never appears there. Federalism is the sharing of power between national and state governments. In America, the states existed first, and they struggled to create a national government. There are many states, which always face storm and flood, and there is an agency which provides service to rescue and helps the victims and family which is called federal emergency management agency and it is established for over 200 years. However, there were many times where FEMA failed to do their job properly for example the hurricane Katrina and New Orleans was at particular risk.

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.
All the civilians around were not prepared for such a hit. Hurricane Pam, an artificial hurricane was created as a practice run before this dreadful hurricane attacked. Although, little did everyone know that what they were preparing for was not enough. The city of New Orleans would be soon known as the city under water. It all started as a tropical storm, leading to a disastrous hit.
Most people may only have a faint memory of that day. They recall the news articles in the days following or that their meeting was canceled, because of bad weather that later transpired into the tornado that hit towns near them. However, I will not be able to forget as easily as some, because one of the houses the storm tore through was my grandparents '. It, as well as the houses in the rest of the neighborhood, was completely leveled by the tornado. The majority of these families did not have proper insurance for something like this.
In the early 21st century, one of the most destructive natural disasters to ever make landfall in the United States occurred. New Orleans, Louisiana was forever changed on August 29, 2005 when Hurricane Katrina left over 1500 of its residents dead, and displaced more than 1 million people in the Gulf region (FEMA 2015). Although the city had always taken severe weather precautions, such as installing intricate levees to protect itself, it proved itself to be no match to the Category 5 hurricane that left it in shambles for years to come.
A big storm hit the coast of Queensland, New South Wales and Tasmania over the past few days, hitting homes worth millions. Three people have been confirmed dead near Canberra and New South Wales, many people have been evacuated from their homes. Bondi beach has been closed with huge waves, a man got washed away. Streets in Sydney have had a massive flood, houses are starting to fall apart. The houses that have been washed away won’t be covered by insurance because insurance usually doesn’t cover houses that are near beaches or that have been washed away.
