Preparing for a disaster
Ana was at school when she first found out about the Cyclone. She was instructed to go home and stay safe with her family.
At home, Ana’s dad was boarding up the windows in their home, and her mother was harvesting all the vegetables she could. Her brothers were in charge of cutting down large branches and trees and gathering the chickens in their coop.
Ana had to pack her bag, it was filled with clothes, her water bottle, crackers, soap, a toy, and matches.
Her family spent the night of the storm in her school which was turned into an evacuation center.
