Hurricane Juan (one)
Two days ago the hurricane started, I was sleep at that time and I didn't even get awaked of the sleep I guess I was really tired. On the morning the hurricane stopped but we had no power or internet or even hot water! Me and my family had nothing to do because there was no power so we went into the car and had a tour to see the other houses and the street's. Our house had no damage thankfully but our backyard and garden is all messed up but that don't even matter... We saw like tress fallen and torn on streets houses damaged real bad, 3 people I think died from this storm one was an ambulance driver that was going to an emergency and he hit a tree on the streets and the other was a woman with her kid inside the house, when there was no power they had candles and it burned down the house and they died too. This huge tree that was behind our house and it was like 20 times taller then me and this wind took it out of the ground with its root! the wind was going 160Km per hour. Our backyard is like hell!! theres like 50 trees all fallen... Our satellite survived too somehow and it works perfect. I saw some peoples satellite like hung on they're house. Most company signs are torn over. I saw this lottery sign and before it used to say " You can win $5,000,000" and now the #5 was gone and it said "You can win $ ,000,000". They were actually giving out free coffee at a store we saw in Halifax but the line was HUUGGEE!! . When we got home we ate Barbeque Hotdogs, man that was good. I had like 5 candles in my room to keep it bright enough. After we slept and woke up tomorrow morning the power was back I checked checked to see if the internet is back too but it wasn't, I guess the last thing they fixed was the internet cables. The lake near our house is like the sewage! its so brown that I thought it was actually the sewage, what actually happened to the lake was that the water pumps weren't working. Some of the army came to Halifax to clean up the mess from the Hurricane Juan. Until now its 4:36PM and my internet is back baby!
Here are some pictures that I took myself of the Hurricane Juan in Dartmouth:
Torn tree; You can see lots of this now!
Macdonalds sign; I guess nature didnt like they're food as much
Look at the roof of the house and the wall, the wall is all torn off if.
The candle in our house
Look at this Canada flag all torn!
I hope I could take more pictures for you guys to see...
