The hurricane sandy has adverse effects on the places it hit most and the people living there. The student who gave this answer has thoroughly looked into the issue of how everything has happened with the recent hurricane. To be more precise, the healthcare of these people was at a very high risk a considering the many factors that has been given as examples.
In La Plata, there was massive water flow leading the sanitary waters to break. The sanitary water, which consists of the sewage water, filled up the area causing many unhealthy results for the people there. The dirty water obviously contaminated any clean water they had, forcing them to take contaminated water. This has bad effects on the people’s healthcare as intake of this water may cause diarrhea and other health complications. On top of this, the water had bad effects on the health of the animals living in this region as it led to the death of the aquatic life, as they could no longer survive in waters, which were contaminated. It is sad as said that the water treatment facilities available could not help with the storm, hence the health of the people continued to deteriorate.
The hurricane also led to the destruction of the motors, which in turn failed causing short circuit. Again, this was terrible to the health of the people as it led to many people being electrocuted and losing their lives. People could also not go to work in these conditions, as many of them were sick leading to a low business turn out. The student has clearly answered the question because there is the full statement of everything that happened. A full description of the effects of the hurricane and the different sectors that had the most effects is clearly indicated. The reasons to curb the effects of such an incidence such as bringing the energy equipments to a high level to avoid short circuits are cited.
