In a few days it will be over to most of you. But it won't be.
There will be flooding. There will be debris everywhere. People will have no homes. But the media coverage will be gone as fast as the hurricane, and with it the attention of the nation.
As deadly as a hurricane can be, the conditions afterwards are as life threatening but lack the attention grabbing excitement of the cane itself. The roads will be unusable. Power will be out. Trees will be down and houses will be severely damaged. Perishable goods will rot and emergency aid with food supplies will show up slowly, delayed by storm damage and flooding. But at that point everyones attention will have moved on.
Keep in mind that even when the storm passes the effects are felt long afterwards. Keep in mind the 250+ dead Haitians and devastation to their country. The national news certainly won't. Imagine the destruction to infrastructure, like roads, like power, and other essential cogs in modern life. They'll say the worst of it is over tomorrow but that makes little difference to those that will lose their homes, cars, or lives.
