From I Survived Hurricane Katrina, 2005:

All Barry could see as he clung to the tree was water. The water had washed away his whole neighborhood. He tried hard not to imagine what had happened to his mom and dad and little sister, Cleo.

What if they'd all fallen into the water too? What if...

Barry was shaking now. Then he heard a new sound, a cracking and groaning. He stared in shock at what was floating in the water.

A house.

Moving slowly, turning. Its blown-out windows seemed to stare at Barry. The splintered wood looked like teeth in a wide-open mouth.

And it was coming right at him.
