A Hurricane’s Fury!

Did Hurricane Isaac pay you a visit by showering you with some of his fury?  Well, if he has not visited you, perhaps he is on his way  via rain, rain and more rain, wind, wind and more wind;  or perhaps,  the mixture of rain and wind and  combinations of who knows what.  Oh, if he feels like it, he may just drop a tornado or two in the form of a tropical storm. However weather conditions lends itself to him, he will transform himself in  one or the other. That’s not to say that Hurricane Isaac does  hold back his fury when it comes to our rivers, lakes and oceans.  He has not and will not. Time and time again, our waters, i.e. rivers, lakes overflow in many areas causing flooding.
Of course,  Hurricane Isaac is not concerned about the destructive path he leaves behind.  Nor does he concern himself with the fate of  anyone; whether they become one of his victims is of no concern of Hurricane Isaac.  Many are victims of this hurricane,  losing their homes,  some victims drowned in their home when they could not escape and no one could rescue them in time.  This  would happen in wake of Hurricane Isaac’s path in Louisiana.  In Mississippi, two people lost their  life because of Hurricane Isaac.   As of this writing, the reports are that there are seven fallen victims as a result of Hurricane Isaac’s fury.  What great is that the deaths are at a minimum by far a record of much less than Hurricane Katrina who claimed as many as a 1,000-plus lives just a few years ago.
One upside to deal with some of the fury of Hurricane Isaac  and other such hurricanes, we can lend credit to advancing technology, weather  radars; thus, ability to stay on top of what’s happening on a 24-hour basis. Also, we can thank the quick actions of our President. We can thank FEMA, the Red Cross and private citizens for  doing their part for each others to help  each other.

As of this writing, we are having impending visits by Joyce, Kirk and Leslie, all we hope will lessen their  fury upon us and will take a turn away from us.

An update:  I was thinking that we would not have anymore hurricanes.  However, we see that is not the case.  It is now the end of October; the East Coast is experiencing  the fury of Hurricane Sandy.  She will make landfall  tonight or tomorrow.  The President, governors, mayors and other officials have asked people to heed  warnings in wake of Hurricane Sandy.  I use the telephone and  social media to reach out to relatives, friends and others on the East Coast.
