PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE INTRODUCTION!! It may repeat itself, but I want to make my message and purpose clear to all audiences.
Many people have failed to understand what this tribute really means, and I'll explain it one more time here.
Hurricane Charley...you've probably seen the damages in the news and wonder "Why did he make this, I can watch TV and see it all..." You can't. You see, the media only shows you the most extensive damage and tries to tell you that the damages are in the billions of dollars. Well, what about other small cities? They account for something, and this collage of images is here to show you just that. Small, rural areas that were generally affected much less than Punta Gorda, but still add in to the billion dollar equation.
Hello, Newgrounds. It's been a while since I've picked up Flash. I'd like to take a moment to remind you tha while most of my Flash movies suck, I've taken some time on this one...and it's not really a movie in that sense of being animated.
Hurricane Charley made landfall on the Florida coast Friday, August 13th, 2004...and it took an unforecasted turn. Because of this, many areas that were supposed to avoid being hit severely got pounded by winds in excess of 70 mph, heavy rain, and even a few tornadoes. I live in one of those areas, and found that the media was focused primarily on areas that were hardest hit, like Punta Gorda and the southwest coast of Florida. So, I've created an interactive collage in Flash containing images of the destruction around my area and Altamonte Springs. There are 21 images, and millions of dollars in damages are pictured.
56K USERS TAKE NOTE: This will most likely be a VERY LARGE FILE. If you insist on viewing it, PLEASE BE PATIENT and DO NOT VOTE 0 JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN'T VIEW IT.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all victims of this massive hurricane, including those in Cuba, Florida, and other states that were affected.
