U.S. Heat Wave Another: Disaster For Eastern U.S.

3 07 2012

On July 2, 2012 the people in the eastern United States of America from Indiana to New Jersey still have no electricity to cool themselves during the very hot summer.

This is a great disaster.

First there were violent storms that knock down power, damaged cars and buildings and killed at least 13 people and now there will be no electricity for days.

It was reported it may take a week or more before the power can be restored for everybody in the effected areas.

I am sad and sorry for the people who have to endure the heat without the electricity to help them cool themselves.

That means they cannot turn on the fan or the air-conditioner.

There will be no cold drinks and ice-creams for days because the fridges need electricity to work.

I guess the reason for the summer heat wave is due to the global warming.

Explosions at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant caused more serious disaster to Japan after a 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami.

At least 10,000 people were killed in the earthquake and tsunami disasters.

This is the world’s most serious nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine in 1986.

Nuclear power plant is a place where people produce electricity.

But nuclear radiation is very, very dangerous.

It can kill human, animals and plants and it can also caused cancer.

It could cause a big disaster and the effect will last for a long, long time.

This is the worst nuclear disaster in Japan after the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings in 1945.
