How can you prepare for weather emergencies? From Florida hurricanes to the freezing temperatures people faced in the south this winter, Hurricanes are already in the news. From the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey to the potential impact of rising storms like Irma there are many risks associated with hurricanes. Who could have predicted the massive flooding from Harvey? And flooding is only one of the risks associated with hurricanes.
Help students understand the risks and how to make decisions on preparing for the risks of hurricanes by using some of the resources on the Tampa Bay Times Hurricane Preparedness web page. You can also check out the geography of the storm on the NIE Tampa Bay Times Mapper
Help students prepare for the financial disasters that can occur due to weather. Check out the Federal Reserve lesson plans that were created in the aftermath of Katrina, where you can also download or order copies of the poster, found below, on preparing for Financial Disasters.
