It was Sunday morning and the Morrison’s had just gotten back from church. They decided to sit and relax on their porch to enjoy the nice day. Being outside is their favorite thing to do.
All of the sudden, the ground started shaking. It got faster and faster as time went on. Things all around them began to fall down. Their porch starting collapsing, so they all got under a table outside. They looked up, and saw their house started to fall down.
They notice that the ground all around them has started cracking. So they run out into their street with all of their other neighbors.
Soon after, the rumbling stopped. Everything was in pieces just lying on the ground. Nothing stood standing. Nobody knew what to do. A couple of days later...... FEMA officials came to asses the damage. The purpose of FEMA is to help people in a time of need because of a disaster.
Since everyone in the family is a United States citizen and insurance can’t meet their rebuilding needs, FEMA will help pay for the damage. FEMA gave them money to help rebuild their home.
To get back on their feet, the mom is going out on job interviews. She hopes to get a job and use that money to finish the house. She doesn’t want to rely on FEMA for all the building expenses. The father still has his bank job which wasn’t affected because it’s out of state.
