Thousands of people have been stranded in Houston, Texas. The question is, why? Hurricane Harvey has struck and is the cause of tremendous stress and panic for many Americans. Since Houston’s airports have been flooded, nobody can enter or leave Texas. Now, many people are using boats as a form of transportation, traveling down neighborhood streets. As the flooding got  worse in Houston, Texas, people were making human chains and holding their pets above their heads, while getting into boats and heading to safety. The flooding was so bad that Hurricane Harvey dropped a record of 50 inches of water by Tuesday morning. Because the water was so high, it left over 30,000 people in the need of shelter. Additionally, in order for rescuers to save people, again they had to make human chains so people wouldn’t get taken away by the waves of the water. Many rescuers, and people, have died trying to leave and have also died trying to help people get out of the storm. Whenever there is a hurricane, it is very difficult to get food and water, because either people are stuck in their homes and can’t get out or the stores are completely empty. Many people have been stuck in their homes without food or water which means they have very low survival needs. Lastly, many people are struggling and need help, because they need homes, are stuck in their homes without food or water, or are in the need of medical attention.  But why?  America needs to have an honest conversation about what is causing these super storms, before there is nothing left of our planet.

    I like your title. It is such a classic and I chuckled to myself because it was funny. I also like that you researched what you were about to write and didn’t just watch some news story and then write about it. It also taught me how severe this hurricane actually was and I felt bad for the victims.
