hurricanes from berky

I think the most interesting idea in the reading is how some US citizens including WPA workers cleaned up the floods help thier fellow citizens after the hurricane disappeared. "The WPA, along with the Coastal Guard, the and navy, the CCC, and Red Cross, had feild agents headed to long Island and New England" (Taylor 379). WPA's workers and help the New England residents by restorations any necessary public facilities and roads."By Thursday night WPA and other lobarers were filling sandbags and loading them into trucks"(Taylor 380). This Idea is really awesome because if the citizens in any given nation don't help each other during a disasterous times, they would surely suffer.

In contrast, to residents in Lousianna which hit by Hurricane Katrinna, didn't recieve enough assistance. This hurricane form over Gulf of Mexica and strengthen rapidly 3 category when it land falls in eastsouth in Lousiana. Hurricanes is one of the deadliest and costliest hurricane ever in the history in the US. "At least 1,836 people lost their lives in the actual hurricane and in the subsequent floods, making it the deadliest U.S. hurricane since the 1928 Okeechobee Hurricane"(Wikipedea). More than one million persons had fled from Lousiann state specially New Orleans. Federal Government did'nt act swifly and so little work has done to evacute the resident.
