Review of The Hurricane

A category 4 hurricane descends on a 13 year old girl and her Mom.

This piece is meant to be, among all other things, suspenseful. The music seems to be in all minor keys. There is a scary situation in the bathroom, the place of refuge, then the eye of the hurricane.

This is a good piece, and well produced. I didn't get the suspense, though, it didn't really build for me. That took away from the piece, for me, but it is still strong enough for airplay, especially if nothing but to educate on the good reasons for evacuating from a hurricane.
