The initial impact was devastating which left about 300,000 people homeless out of a population of about 410,000. Many of the people were evacuated to nearby cities, and the others lived in makeshift tents on the beach of North beach. In fact years later in 1908 these refugee camps were still in operation. The overall cost of the damages was estimated at the time to be 400 million US Dollars (around 8.2 Billion present Dollars). The fires that were a direct result from the main shock and the aftershocks were just as damaging because of the uncontrollable burning from ruptured gas lines.
Ike was a huge economic burden to the U.S. and “estimates suggest Ike may become one of the costliest hurricanes on record” (FEMA 10). Hurricanes are known for causing severe structural damage to houses, but also have an effect on many businesses as well.

Whole families were living in attics, cellars, or single rooms, with one house holding up to 60 people in multiple rooms. Sanitation was not common in a lot of cities even making clean water for the rich a luxury. Sewers ran down streets, wide-open, carrying water fouled with industrial and human waste.

This is where trouble happens. Many are so enamored by the Dream that when reality hits, it hits hard. The Dream cannot always be fulfilled. It gives many individuals false hope; they have such high expectations that in the end, their dreams are denied.
