Clash with the hurricane Chapter 1 I woke up early morning and turned on the TV. I could not see anything clearly because I did not have my glasses on. Only red flashing lights from the TV appeared in my eyes. I got up and went and put on my glasses. The red flashing lights that were coming from the TV now made sense to me. 'BREAKING NEWS' I used the remote controller and went and put up the volume. 'Indestructible hurricane has blown over the Big Ben' I could not believe what I was hearing. 'The hurricane has taken over 230 lives and still has not finished its quest for destruction. The hurricane is now appearing to be heading for North Surrey' the news reporter man reported.
