Natural disasters are meant to cause destruction and to break thing apart Sometimesthey end up bringing people together In September of 1996 Hurricane Fran sweptthrough my town with the power of mother nature behind it all the way Fran broughtwinds that reached speeds of close to 100 miles per hour tornadoes and golf ball sizedhail Needless to say that this storm did a lot of damage All over the town people didnot have any power could not use their water I remember how dark everything waswithout any light I was scared but also kind of excited because I had never been in ahurricane before The thing that scared me the most was the possibility that I would nothave a house when I woke the next morningAs my family sat in the living room everything was silent except for the loudclaps of thunder and the howling wind I peered out of the window looking at the cloudsspeeding across the sky frequently being lit up by the bright flashes of lightning As Ilooked out the window I noticed that a 110 foot tall poplar tree was slowly making itsway down to my roof I told my step-dad about the tree and he decided it would be bestif we did not stay in the house So we made a break for our cars and drove to mystep-dads shop which was only two miles away The drive did not take two minutes itseemed more like ten because of the rain and wind we encountered while on the road That night I could not sleep I stayed up and watched the storm devastate the town Inever in my life have ever seen such an example of raw natural power The stormseemed like a giant hand that just picked up objects and threw them across the street andtook trees and bent them like they were no more than wet pasta noodles Well that next morning is one I will not forget
