Transcript - It's only Rain Gilberted windows weeks after the near miss. Photo by K.Reister. Thar He Blows Hurricane Gilbert came as a major disappointment to many people in the Houston area, but as a relief to others. As all were warned at least three days in advance of the level five storm, many began preparations early in the areas near Galveston Bay. Windows were taped with yellow x's, larger windows were bordered with plywood, livestock were moved to higher ground, billboards were disassembled and the grocery store shelves emptied. The memories of Alicia were still vivid in the minds of its victims and no one wanted a repeat. Some stood in line for two hours for plywood and supplies. McCoy's Lumber and Hardware stores in Pasadena ran out of plywood within 24 hours of the report of possible landing in Houston. They began supplying people with pressboard as a substitute. A trucker bringing the wood to McCOy's said he was on a 24 hour shift until Gilber was over. After he brought the wood for damage prevention, he would be transporting supplies for rebuilding. Those who were unwilling to wait out the storm were seeking shelter in hotels in Dallas, College Station, and as close as Northwest Houston. As Gilbert narrowed its course towards Mexico, tensions eased, people returned to their homes, tape was peeled off, unused plywood was shipped to Mexico along with bottled water and canned food. We were all relieved that it had missed us. ► Kimberly S. Reister The environment of the '80's was pockmarked by man's pollution. From the hole in the Ozone layer over the South Pole to toxic waste, man had almost pushed his environment past the point of no return. Fed up the world began to return the favor. Syringes with needles still in place began washing up on east and west coast beaches. A barge loaded with trsah sailed around the east coast to Galveston, but no one wanted it. Nations held confer ences to discuss the problem of world pollution. The most prominent and recent discussed acid rain. Information compiled by the Natural Resource Defense Council show that rain monitered at a sight in central Pennsyl- vania registered the highest acid content of 131 sites in 46 states. The Washington D.C.- based council has lobbied for sharp reductions in pollutants that cause acid rain, such as sulfer dioxide and nitrogen oxide. ► I. B. Young Acid rain or not, you all get wet.
