Hurricanes & Tornadoes Hurricanes and tornadoes are both severe weather events that can potentially cause a great deal of damage to property. Both of these storms can threaten human life and in severe events with either a hurricane of a tornado there may well be a loss of life. They may be quite different in how they form and what they actually do but on the other hand those storms are both potentially devastating so they fall into the same category of potential severe weather danger. People who live in areas where hurricanes and tornadoes are known to appear during certain seasons of the year are always urged to be alert to weather warning systems. Those same residents know from experience to keep their radios tuned to weather emergency stations and they are in many cases prepared for the brunt of a storm by building basement shelters.

Hurricanes have affected the Caribbean islands for many centuries but particularly in the 19th century. During the 1840’s Cuba was affected by three hurricanes that all happened within four years of each other in 1842, 1844, and 1846. Many scholars have looked over these hurricanes in Cuba as not really having much of an in depth affect on Cuba’s life and history but just as being hurricanes. But Louis A. Pérez Jr. a professor and scholar, labeled these 19th century hurricanes as a “flash point” to look at Cuba’s history from multiple angles. saw the 1842, 1844, and 1846 hurricanes as being more than just storms by using multiple resources like the Archivo Nacional de Cubaa, Havana, encyclopedias, such as the Encyclopedia of Hurricanes, Typhoons, and Cyclones by David Longshore (New York, 1998), and descriptive chronologies by David L. Niddrie and David M. Ludlow to name a few. By reviewing and using all of these resources, Louis A. Pérez concluded that the 1840’s hurricanes had an effect on agriculture, social relations, and the overall national identity of Cuba.

Hurricanes are destruction, they are brutal, they are the epitome of devastation. Hurricanes are synonymous with damage, but so is Sherman Alexie. In The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven, the damage imposed on today’s Native Americans is traced back to the infamous year of 1492. The pain we caused, the genocide of culture, of people, of opportunity, of safety, still lingers today. We shudder about the past, we regret what we had done, and we forget. We are blind to our current Native American population.

Fear comes in all shapes and forms, be it a natural disaster, paranormal event, or a dangerous situation, it never fails to give us chills. When i was younger, i had a very scary event happen to me. It was a rainy and windy night and I was facetiming a friend, and she had just told me that there was a man looking into my front door windows, and when i looked up i saw that there was indeed a man in the window. I ran to my mom’s room, she called the sheriff and after they looked around and came back to us, they showed us a picture. The picture was of an outline of a pair of shoes (on our driveway) that were completely dry, even when rain poured on them.

In Chapter 12 the remains of the hurricane are brought to the surface. The community lost the nature that surrounds them and their families lives. Esch’s childhood was changed by this hurricane. Katrina brought the family together through the loss of possessions, which create a place to store your memories and sentimental items. Memories for Randall were physically taken away but not mentally. An acknowledgment and acceptance was brought to old situations with Esch and Daddy. Hope was shown through the loss of China. The indomitability of the Bois community after Katrina shows the strength of the community when brought together.
Most hurricanes have a very bad effect on people. Such as when their home gets destroyed after hurricane, and being too dangerous to rebuild the home. This is a moment in life that people don’t want to remember, and are thankful for those who survived. This is why people are thankful for who survived during the hurricane, it is too dangerous to live close to the coast when it is a high effect that the house may not be there after the hurricane happens. After Hurricanes happen, people would want to rebuild, but the rebuilding has a lot of factors that most people don’t think about like, recurring hurricanes, cost, and hazardous issues.
