It was destroyed 8 miles from the coast of Old head of Kinsale, Ireland. Built by John Brown and company of Clydebank, Scotland. First Launched Thursday, June 7, 1906. After the Sinking of Lusitania the U.S threatened war. The Lusitania was destroyed in the same was as the Titanic as they could not pull the boats into the sea and water kept rushing into the hull through the front where the torpedo hit as the boat couldn’t be stopped.
As it fell onto the ground, loud thundering noises were made like the shattering of glass. The ground was almost groaning in grief as the rain continuously hammered it at a huge force and settled in great pools of motionless water. The sun shone its rays, yet again, after many hours of thunderous rain. The puddles had forms large pools of water and shone in the gentle sunlight, yet the remains of the destroyed house lay there in between two other towering houses and had been abandoned by its owners who had left it to move on to a new place and leave their old one to stay there in its place, solitary and pitiful as it lay in ruins on a wet, windy winters day.
The deck was swept up and back on itself, as the water rushing beneath brutally tore at bulkheads and decks. My sterns section, falling at speed hit the seabed and slammed into the mud, causing some of the decks to collapse on top of each other, like a stack of playing cards. Heavy objects form the break in the hill like boilers landed in the vicinity of the stern which had taken a more or less straight path to the seabed, the bow section, although planning away hit the seabed at an angle causing the bow to adopt a twist in its position. In conclusion, that was it my first ever voyage which was supposed to be a luxurious voyage turned out to be something completely else. I sank to my watery grave and took my last gulp of air...
Not only was I to suffer abuse at the hands of this air conditioner but I would miss the end of my show too. I climbed upstairs, seething with a rage mixed with adolescent hormones and self pity. I reached my bedroom, threw back the drapes, approached the window from where the air conditioner was perched and jerked open the window. To my horror, the air conditioner tumbled backwards out the window, end over end and landed squarely on the roof of my fathers two day old Buick. The Buick roof crumpled like a piece of paper.
The Darkness Out There - Original Writing The booming sound of the engine like an explosion didn’t sound to good to me. Suddenly, the plane just went out of control, I shouted and screamed to my comrades sat up the front. I heard their cry for help. What could I do? I tried to open the emergency exit but it was jammed and before I knew it I was slammed onto the floor; landing with an explosion almost deafening me.
Sandy destroyed our beautiful shores, killing animals, plants, and etcetera. Oil was a main concern as, during Hurricane Katrina,“The U.S. Coast Guard said that much of the spilled oil has been cleaned up or naturally dispersed,” (qtd. in West 1) But it is hard to take account for all the damage done, just like we can not count how many plants were damaged, or how many animal homes were lost. Trees were downed in many of our neighborhoods, and all we were concerned about were the precious telephone wires. And then it is also common knowledge that sand and water flooded major roadways around the coast.
For a moment the instinct of self-preservation took charge of me, but this was immediately dominated by the habit of command.” (1) Sigsbee climbed to the deck of the ship to see it sinking into the ocean.

When disaster struck it was sudden. Without warning flames gushed from within the Hindenburg's hull; thirty-two seconds later the airship lay on the ground, ravaged. Never had the sights and sounds of a disaster in progress been so graphically documented. Within a day, newspaper readers and theater audiences were confronted by fiery images of the Hindenburg. Radio listeners heard the emotional words of newsman Herb Morrison, sobbing into his recorder, "It's burning, bursting into flames, and it's falling on the mooring mast and all the folks.
There is not a more relaxing atmosphere than a cozy house while a light thunderstorm passes overhead. An oncoming thunderstorm should visibly change your atmosphere. One can look out the window and see the trees swaying easily in the wind. One should turn off all the lights as to sooth your sense of sight. The turning off of lights and the blocking of the sun by clouds will both darken your house making the perfect place to go rest or even nap.
The water crashed against the wooden pier of the docks, as the bay churned violently. The ships docked there rocked relentlessly at the mercy of the current. Dark clouds hung low in the sky, threatening to open and let the angels’ tears fall to earth. It was a regular thing in Venezia to have hot, humid afternoons followed by a powerful storm or rain. Many of the merchants here considered me a nuisance, but I choose to consider myself as a “honourable” thief.
