Regardless of how ready you may feel for the worst, nothing can perhaps fully prepare you for the effects of a natural disaster. The unfortunate people of the Carolinas may well be able to attest to that, as they faced down Hurricane Florence in September 2018. However, when North Carolina resident Shelli Tench looked to help those in need, she was left stunned by a Walmart manager’s incredible gesture.
Since the summer of 2017, the U.S. has been hit by a number of significant storms following a relatively quiet period for extreme weather. In fact, after a nightmarish few months in 2005 that saw four Category 3 storms reach the mainland, another of equivalent power didn’t come for another 11 years.
However, after the Category 4 Hurricane Matthew left its mark in October 2016, the U.S. then faced three monstrous storms the following year – starting with Hurricane Harvey. A Category 4 storm, Harvey reached land in August 2017, with the residents of Texas and Louisiana bearing the brunt. And in just under a week, Harvey caused incredible damage in those two states.
