    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.
