Hunker down folks, this storm is a big one,
Urgent warnings of danger prevail.
Rushing to gather all supplies needed,
Race against time to prepare for the worst.
It's getting stronger, moving closer....
Continuous rain falls, flooding streets,
Angry winds roar and destroy.
No one is safe in the path of this beast.
Evacuate if you can.
Michael came calling one October day.
Intense and aggressive he pounded the coast,
Chaos and devastation he left in his wake.
Homes were turned into piles of debris,
A heartbreaking sight for all to see.
Epic destruction for miles around,
Losses so staggering, yet faith abounds.
