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
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.
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.
What is this!? One last city we havn't been too? Find out next time where this is.
Thank-you for reading and untill next time Goodbye!
