Having lived in states and especially in countries that have hurricanes and
typhoons, it is amazing to see the damage one storm or days of the same storm
can do in such a short time. To see the courses of rivers changed to occupy
more than the banks or shores as the storm recedes and moves out to sea, again.
The good that the United States of America has done over the years
in these countries is a blessing for those that lost the food and clean water
supply. Many of those places rely on getting food everyday, whether from a
field, tree or even a small store that may carry what they need. We live in
such a great country where there are plans of government and volunteer
organizations that are there to help when needed. Even in our worst case of
Katrina, when we lived in Mississippi, those people had fear and trepedation of
hurricanes such as Camille, Frederick and then Katrina. The coastal areas are
beautiful and yet hazardous when storms of hurricane strength pass through.As military, I had associates that flew into those storms to help
predict the strength and speed for protection on shore.
