I was living near Jackson, MS, when Katrina came through. I saw the forecast for an "inland hurricane" and wondered, "What's that - an INLAND hurricane???" I'm from Louisiana and thought I knew all about hurricanes. Turns out I had a lot to learn and I found out what an "inland hurricane" is about.

I helped in the cleanup of central Florida after hurricane Charley and have never seen such widespread damage and destruction.The high heat and humidity did not help one bit in the cleanup.These natural disasters are unforgettable.
