Today I am going to write about hurricane Ike.
Hurricane Ike was the most costliest hurricane in Texas history and the Third most costliest in U.S. history. It became tropical storm September 1 2008 it became a category 4 storm three days later on September 4 and was the strongest hurricane of 2008. Ike caused 7.3 billion dollars in Cuba and the was the costliest yet in that country. Ike costed the U.S. 29.5 billion dollars of damage. For evacuation George W. Bush made a emergency declaration and everybody had about a couple days before the hurricane hit and most evacuated but not all some stayed in their house.
During the hurricane I went to a relatives house and stayed there the whole time for the duration of the storm. Justin cousin had a generator too and he had a bath tub full of water and that is where we got all of our water from. For the days we spent there I slept on the couch listening to the wind and loud noises outside. After a couple days the lights came on again and we went back to our apartment and my step brother and step brothers friend and grandma spent the night in our apartment for a couple days then headed to back home after a couple more days. we had to cook all of the food in the freezer because there was no electricity and my grandma made a big feast for everybody.
We were lucky that nothing was gone or damaged because a room in our apartment. we had our dog so we did not have to worry about here being bored she had stayed in the back with the other dogs. None of our families stuff was broken and we were really happy about it too because of how strong the storm was.
