Clash with the Hurricane- Personal Narrative

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.
‘God, I live in North Surrey’ I thought to myself. I began to be

The grey sky darkened from the blue, light sky of the early afternoon.
It suddenly turned to a dark, gloomy sky with a mist cloud hovering. I
walked back into the car, seemingly it was going to pour down.
Heavily, the wind blew. I turned to shut the windows, but, as I looked
closer out of the window, gigantic clouds started swirling together
creating an immense hurricane. I knew hurricanes were so dangerous
but, at the same time, from a distance it was such a magnificent
phenomenon. Heavily, rain poured, hitting the ground with loud bangs
like bullet from a gun. I was in my car so the sound was on the roof.
All around ‘bang, bang, bang.’ I began to be afraid.

My mobile phone vibrated in my pocket. I picked it up. I looked at the
phone screen to see who it was. It was my
mum.
‘Hello, mum are you alright’ I said in a panicked voice, after knowing
