Hurricane Sandy, and the recent series of earthquakes of the British Columbia coast, are more reminders that we are vulnerable to nature,
You have probably been affected by a severe storm or Hurricane like Sandy, sometime in your lifetime. Some of you may have lived in an affected area, or have people you care about in the area. Maybe, it brings to mind a natural disaster you’ve had to go through.
Seeing all of the coverage of Hurricane Sandy brought to mind the most intense natural disaster I’ve ever been through…the 100 year flood in Houston in 2000. My son Aaron was on one the Disaster rescue team. That team was just one of hundreds in Houston to help people.
The Space Shuttle Columbia crash in East Texas. Hard to explain until you experience something like this or some it brings about weird fears and thoughts during these times.
Despite the fear, natural disasters do bring out the best in people you know and don’t know. A week away from election day, the Government has been handed a disaster on a scale that can define a heroism. The sheer size of the area devastated by Hurricane Sandy — stretching up the eastern seaboard of North America through the most densely populated states in the union – is staggering.
If this has happened to you would call in and share about natural disasters they’ve been through and how people stepped in to help.
