Here we go again, another hurricane, this one goes by the beautiful name of María, pretty name, I know. This storm, however, doesn’t look like it will be pretty; it’s already a category 5 hurricane and it will go over the entire island. Because of María’s intensity and traveling direction, through Puerto Rico, the government and news sources are putting us all in high alert. They are doing exactly what they need to be doing to keep us safe.
Just like before Irma, shelters are being prepared for anyone who needs it, people are stocking up on non-perishable foods, water, ice, flashlights, batteries, in order to prepare for what’s coming in the next few days. Also, just like last time, we will be leaving our home and going to hide in a house. This time our host will be my brother who has, very nicely, offered us the safety of his house. When we heard the warnings for people living in apartments and above the fourth floor, we quickly jumped on his offer.
Everywhere I look people are preparing for Maria, just like they did for Irma, and making sure they, their homes and families are safe. We hear the warnings, we have seen this before and we will be ready for you María.
Also, if that María could be stopped, or at least toned down a bit, it really wouldn’t be a bad thing.
