The Effect of the Storm

One day everybody was gone except for a few people, there were only 30 people left. The rest did not survive because of the hurricane that hit two years ago. And they were surviving through difficult times. They had to hunt to get supplies like clothes, shoes, jackets, food, and socks. They would hunt at Save_A_Lot and Walmart.

The few people left made a little parade. It was awesome because they were throwing out packs beads and stuffed animals. The floats were awesome, they were superhero characters and they had a band and cheerleaders. There was a Batman, Superman, Spider_Man, and an Incredible Hulk

And Thor.
