Allison Lo Professor Hall ES 140 September 12, 2007 Disaster Journal #1 Summary On Tuesday September 4, Hurricane Felix, a category 5 hurricane, hit the Central American coastline devastating Puerto Cabezas in Nicaragua and destroying many nearby coastal villages and cayes. 7,995 houses along the coastline were destroyed. The death toll neared 100 and many still remain missing. Many of the residents of Puerto Cabezas survive by fishing and catching lobsters and went out in their boats the morning Hurricane Felix hit. They went out to sea unwarned and unprepared for the hurricane. As a result, many residents blame the Nicaraguan government for the deaths because the government did not inform the people until it was too late – the government posted a warning less than 24 hours before Hurricane Felix devastated the coast. Also, aid was slow to arrive and many of the survivors were disgruntled and cold with no food or fresh water.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
