Caitlin Connor TA: Michael Coopersmith Holtermann, W. (2014). Hurricane. The Kenyon Review,36(1), new series, 13-17. “Hurricane”, written by Wes Holtermann, describes the experience of the narrators Jesse and Lucy, before, during, and after a hurricane that took place in Arkansas. We learned that before the storm had hit, they tried to plan and be ready for it by watching the “digitally simulated hurricane pinwheel toward the coast” (13) on the news, but when they realized they most likely wouldn’t follow their detailed plans to prepare, they just went to church and prayed they would be okay during the storm. During the storm, their house began flooding, being invaded by animals such as snakes and fish, living and dead. The winds tore through the city, taking down telephone poles, trees, homes, basically anything in its way. After the storm Jesse and Lucy, whose point of view this article was told from, tried driving through the mess to get somewhere dry and livable until their home got back to normal. We know how they survived the storm, but we were never told about the cleanup of Arkansas or how long it took to restore it to their normal ways. Mortality Associated with Hurricane Katrina — Florida and Alabama, August–October 2005. (2006). Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report,55(9), 239-242. “Morality Associated with hurricane Katrina - Florida and Alabama, August - October 2005” published by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), talks about the fatalities that took place during and after Hurricane Katrina. CDC used bar charts to compare the deaths that were directly related, indirectly related, and possibly related to Hurricane Katrina, direct being those who died from impact of the storm and indirect being those who were in an unsafe and unsanitary place during the storm (240). They formed charts stating the amount of deaths
