Zulu2065- Thanks, I think I might try to find this song.

Welcome to Springfield Population- Zero

With all of this talk about the "s word" where I am, I think I might give you guys a little suprise! To findout what that suprise is... look below.

One Day Before Landfall

As Hurricane Ana (now a strong catagory one hurricane) approaches officials warn people to leave, and luckily many evacuate and heed the warnings.


Traffic on the main road in West Springfield


Traffic is backed up in residentail neighborhoods as well

Twelve Hours Before Landfall


The first dark storm clouds approach the city, quietly signaling the impending doom


Most sane people have left and boarded up their homes



Ana hits with a terrific punch and brings tons and tons of rai....snow? Its SNOWING!

The hurricane has interacted with a coldfront that stalled over the mainland allowing the precipitation to fall as snow!


The snow soon gets very heavy and brings whiteout conditions with it


The snow also began to accumulate on the ground up to six inches!

This was only the beginning though

The Eye of The Hurricane


Thundersnow broke out, damaging the nuclear power plant and knocking out power to hundreds of thousands or people.


People who didn't have generators lost power


Waves began to splash over the seawall, and coastel flooding began to become the largest concern


The water soon overwhelmed city center sending flodd waters onto main street


As the water engulfed the city gas lines broke creating fires that the fire department couldn't handle or get to due to closed streets


At the height of the storm the violent rotation of the snowy hurricane spun up short lived tornados

The Aftermath

After Ana left the city of Springfield in shambles people were allowed to return to what was left of their homes. Unfortunetly the Snow Melted due to the warm conditions after the storm.


(BEFORE) After the flood waters receded the destruction was apparent, hundreds of homes were washed away and the people who did not evacuate payed the price.


More damage

One Month After Landfall

People began to rebuild and lives were pieced back together.


(AFTER) Homes being rebuilt in the worst hit neighborhood

It took about two years to completely rebuild after Hurricane Ana's Landfall but finally everything is almost back to normal.
