The Impact of Hurricane Sandy on The Community
This article is how after Hurricane Sandy had hit the east coast; it had left many people without the usual celebration of Halloween. The regular tradition had been rescheduled to November 7th, the day after Election Day. In New Jersey Governor Christie had postponed the celebration until the following Monday. Not only did this impact the kid’s tradition to go door to door to collect candy. It had “called off” the Halloween parody, which had been the first time in 39 years. After evaluation the author, Mrs. Goldberg would not have any bias towards the topic. She is more just presenting the details of what will be happening, and giving the quotations of the people she had reported from. This text relates to my topic, because it shows how this storm had delayed a tradition people had been used to having. Not only did it stop the kids, yet it stopped a 39-year-old tradition of the Halloween parade. This article relates to, “Weather News”, and “Down on the Boardwalk, New Jersey Rebuilds One Year After Sandy” because it talks about traditions that been going for long periods of time that had to come to an end or halt because of this disaster.
This article touches on the gas shortages due to the storm from Hurricane Sandy. The main focus of this article is in the New York area, regarding taxi drivers and New York citizens. Shortly after Hurricane Sandy had hit people had lost power, with the result of this people had been powering their house by generators. The thing is people need gas to keep these generators running. This had created a major gas shortage in these areas. This had put many people in dramatic situations. The author of this article is Mark Gongloff, who is a managing editor of business and technology at the Huffington Post. It doesn’t seem to have any bias from the author and it relates to the article, “The Long Road To Recovery” this is because they have the same viewpoints to the disaster and what will have to take place to restore these traditions.
This source touches how Hurricane Sandy had destroyed the board walk of Seaside heights and one year later it has been rebuilt, almost to full reestablishment. This article talks about the dramatic turn this boardwalk had undergone since the Hurricane hit, resulting in the loss of one of the main attractions, the roller coaster. This roller coaster had ended up in the ocean once the storm had settled down. It also talks about “Lucky Leo’s” which had been established in 1952, which prides itself to be open 365 days a year. But after the result of Sandy it had closed for two months. The author of this article is Jason Koebler, he had gotten a journalism degree from the University of Maryland, and had been writing for U.S. News and World Report for 2 year and 5 months with 10 of the 20 highest traffic stories in 2012. He currently lives in Brooklyn New York, which could create bias for this article since he is from the area it had been written about. Although this talks about a boardwalk being destroyed it ties together with the article, “Weather News” and “Hurricane Sandy: Halloween postponed for millions of kids” since it touches on an old tradition that had been changed for the first time in years.
This article had been talking about destruction Hurricane Sandy had produced, which had been the “largest storm ever in the Atlantic Ocean.” This article had also talked about many different catastrophes produced by this Hurricane ranging from death, to outdoor water and air supply. It had also touched on the loss of power in the public homes in the area the storm had rolled through. The author is named John Manuel who is an environmentalist. He had obtained a Bachelors Degree from Yale University, and then went on to get a Masters of Regional Planning from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This article is peer reviewed, making it a scholarly source The intended audience of this article was for the people who care about the community and the people who lived through these conditions to know what had actually happened to the environment. This article is not bias because he is giving information to the people and not giving his own piece of mind. This article relates to the others because it touches on things that would make it hard for people to tend to their everyday traditions such as their morning cup of coffee, or even showering, thus due to the fact of loss of power. In my paper this article will show the affects natural disasters have on everyday traditions. This article shares the same viewpoint as, “Hurricane Sandy Gas Shortage: Dry Pumps Could Last For Days” because it gives input on everyday traditions that had been effected instead of long running traditions.
This article is explaining how Hurricane Sandy had become about, and the damages it had done. It gives insight into how many people had died, and even lost power. It also gives examples of everyday events that had been cancelled or postponed because of the storm, which follow as, “ 20,000 flights were cancelled, the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq Stock Market were closed for an unprecedented two days, several presidential election campaign appearances were cancelled, large sections of the New York subway were flooded and the New York Marathon was called off.” The author of this article is the Royal Meteorological Society, which is a large group of people who are trying to “promote meteorology as a science, profession and interest.” This article is peer reviewed, making it a scholarly source. This article was created to gain the interest of others in this specific topic. These authors would not have bias because they are presenting information. This will fit ideally inside by paper with the idea of traditions cancelled or postponed by natural disasters. This article relates to “Hurricane Sandy: Halloween postponed for millions of kids” and “Down on the Boardwalk, New Jersey Rebuilds One Year After Sandy” because it gives input on natural disasters cease on long running traditions.
On October 29, 2012, a hurricane, known as Sandy, made its way up the eastern seaboard. As she formed and began its journey in the Atlantic, meteorologists on the east coast kept track of this storm. However, as the hurricane became stronger and more powerful while approaching northward along the eastern seaboard, news stations were continuously reporting and keeping track of the pathways of this storm to keep the citizens up to date on the path and to get prepared...
Introduction A natural disaster is defined by the UN as: “the consequences of events triggered by natural hazards that overwhelm local response capacity and seriously affect the social and economic development of a region” (Elizabeth F,2006). Natural disasters, for example, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, tornados, and windstorms, affect many people in the world yearly. It is essential that the impacts of these natural disasters are assessed and preventive measures taken to reduce their impacts. Natural Disasters Natural disasters, technological catastrophes, and...
A disaster is defined as an event bringing great damage, loss, or destruction. An emergency is an unforeseen combination of circumstances or an urgent need for assistance; such as a multiple car crash on I-4. A disaster typically affects a large number of people; whereas, an emergency usually affects only a local community. Communication is a fundamental part of emergency management and yet an inherent struggle during disasters; however, there is typically not a breakdown in communication during an emergency....
It all started with a low-pressure wave in the tropical part of the North Atlantic on October 19. However, it quickly strengthened as it moved northward and grew into a tropical depression near Nicaragua in the Caribbean Sea (Gibbens, 2019). On October 24, 80 mile-per-hour winds caused landfall in Jamaica. The next day, they rose to 110 miles per hour, passing over Cuba (Rafferty, 2021). Traveling northward, Sandy lowered its intensity near the Bahamas. Yet, it grew into a hurricane...
The meat industry has created major issues for the population of the United States and the world altogether. Vegetarians live a much longer, enjoyable life as their antioxidant filled diets keep them mentally and physically healthy. Those that choose to consume animals are automatically put at a much higher risk of death from poor diet related illnesses. The American debt and famine levels continue to raise as mass amounts of money and grain are used in livestock raising. Switching to...
Introduction Coastal ecosystems are areas where the land and water meet creating a distinct structural and diverse environment. Unfortunately, coastal ecosystems are highly sensitive to changes in the surrounding environment, causing concern that some areas will now struggle to maintain biodiversity due to human activity, and other factors (Council 2015). One major ecosystem present along Australia’s coastline is the Great Australian Bight. The Great Australian Bight is very well-known globally due to its abundance of unique marine life and great...
Conservation, noun, con·ser·va·tionˌkän(t)-sər-ˈvā-shən : a careful preservation and protection of something, especially : planned management of a natural resource to prevent exploitation, destruction, or neglect (Merriam-Webster). This definition embodies the wildlife conservation efforts of America. When many people think of wildlife conservation, it does not immediately come to mind how much money and efforts are needed to sustain wildlife conservation. Conservation efforts are largely funded by hunters and most recently, hunter numbers have been on the decline for the past...

Introduction All around the globe, there are a large number of gardens for instance, in North America community garden ranges from the victory garden areas to street beautification planters. Additionally, in many places around Europe, there are various places which have “allotment gardens“ whereby there are a dozen of plots each of which measure hundreds of square meters and are generally rented by the same family for a period of time (Alaimo, Beavers, Crawford, Snyder, & Litt. 2016). The overall...
