The devastation of Hurricane Harvey has left people saddened by the destruction of people’s homes and the lives that were lost. People try to help the victims affect as much as they possibly can.
“Daily life, it doesn’t necessarily affect me except that I feel for the people that have to rebuild and I know that they need so much help,” Smith said.
People make sure to prepare if a hurricane was to come because you never know what can happen. So you should always try to make sure to have a plan and to be prepared. According to Ryan Tank, he doesn’t really think he is prepared.
