The winds of the Atlantic were at it again, a hurricane reaching magnitude three heading towards the gulf coast. Those who experienced the force of Mother Nature in the past prepared carefully, securing their homes and vehicles to the best of their abilities. The winds reached over one-hundred twenty-five miles per hour and the storms surge, flooding hundreds of square miles; reached a record breaking twenty-eight feet. Even the more prepared families found themselves in a life or death battle with nature.
