S: The Hurricane
FC: The Hurricane
1: Rafael just moved near the coast in an area with yearly hurricane occurences. They are mostly minor, but every few hundred years there is an off-the-scale hurricane that devastates the area...
2: Rafael doesn't like his new home. There is constant bad weather. Your senses are dulled gray skies, heavy rain, and frequent flashes of lightning, deafening booms of thunder, and a sharp howling wind are all you can see and hear outside of the house during this time of year. He wishes he was back in Brazil, but he knows that his parents must stay there because of their jobs.
4: One day, Rafael is flipping through the channels on his seventy inch, flat-screen television and stops when he sees the news broadcasting information about a hurricane that is developing and is expected to hit the area soon.
5: They show pictures of the development of the hurricane, and Rafael becomes very concerned. He tells his parents, but they say not to worry.
6: Days later, the news now broadcasts that the storm has grown slightly. Rafael sees this and his concern grows. People are growing more and more nervous as this is close to the largest hurricane they can ever remember occuring. But they don't believe too much damage will happen to their city, because it has been safe all these years.
8: It is the day predicted for the hurricane to hit. There is a last minute broadcast wishing everyone good luck, and for God to be with them. This is the last broadcast the local news network will be airing. The hurricane has gone off the charts and they have declared it will whipe the entire city off the face of the planet, permanently sinking it under water.
10: Widespread panic occurs. Car accidents from people attempting to escape are all over the city. Traffic jams clog every road. No one can escape. Rafael, riding his bicycle in a desparate attempt to get out, is hit by a car. He breaks his leg and instantly knows he's not going to survive this disaster. The hurricane hits. The town is devoured.
12: A few months later, the news broadcasts tragic information. Knowledge of the hurricane had been known for quite a while, but time was too short for preparations to fight against the hurricane. Instead of warning the people beforehand and evacuating the city before the natural disaster hits. Their reason was to not cause panic in the community. Nationwide outrage of this horrific act quickly springs up.
13: For the people in power chose to kill millions of people in the city so that a 'panic' wouldn't occur.
