I agree with this article because I think this helps people become more prepared if they were ever to be in an emergency situation like this. People will know where to go and how to keep themselves and others around them safe and protected by the hurricane.
Delaney Poole's comment, October 2, 2013 6:23 PM
I agree I think you need a plan and that incase it doesn't workout you need to have a backup plan. Also you need to know the signs of a hurricane coming to get ready for it.
Cameron Miller's comment, October 3, 2013 2:05 PM
I completely agree with this video. You don't know when a hurricane will strike, and when it does you need to be ready. We need to have a better way to communicate that a hurricane is coming. This would help people become prepared.

Flooding in Colorado is still becoming a bigger issue everyday. This article tells you about how long it is going to take to rebuild and recreate Colorado. People tell you it's hard to track the amount of rainfall that will come but you just never know. Colorado is getting destroyed day by day and the residents are leaving by the dozen. Buildings are getting taken down and streets are getting torn up. This flood had taken over more than 17 counties and is continuing to grow.

In Virginia, reports say the largest tornado outbreak hit the ground on September 17, 2004. This is the largest tornado in Virginia history. 38 of the 58 tornadoes went through Virginia on that day. Hurricane Ivan was the reason this tornado started. The hurricane produced high winds causing the air to circulate which created the tornado. People were asked to leave the air and to make sure they stayed covered and protected at all times.

I agree with the effort people are putting into building tornado shelters, but really, schools should already be safe when it comes to a tornado. Also, with the fact on how little tornadoes happen, I think the people are wasting their money when they could be upgrading the school's overall safety to prevent tornadoes.
Haley van Zante's comment, October 2, 2013 10:55 PM
If the school doesn't think they should make the shelters safer, then why bother going to the school if the children are not going to be safe. I hope something good comes out of this, and the children need to be in a safe school.
Cameron Miller's comment, October 3, 2013 2:09 PM
I'm glad to see the effort that people are putting into building tornado shelters. The should be already safe though, I think they could spend a bit of money making schools safer.

This video is showing the flooding that takes place in Utah after a rainfall. The flood water carries all sorts of debris and sticks with it as it travels down the land. In this video you can see how fast the flooding comes and how you really have no time to prepare for it. The people in this video track the rainfall and take videos of what happens around 6 hours after.

NASA sends drones to track hurricanes' secrets - Science News

NASA sends drones to track hurricanes' secrets - Science News | Natural Disasters | Scoop.it
A pair of converted military drones are the US space agency's newest tools for tracking hurricanes and tropical storms, with the aim of improving forecasters' ability to predict them.

Aanna Roslien's comment, September 23, 2013 10:30 AM
After investigation, NASA decided to send drones to try and track hurricanes. Using these drones will help track the hurricane and let us be better prepared for them. The drones can fly for 30 hours at an altitude 21,000 meters. NASA predicts that the drones will help but not solve everything. People will still need to stay informed and know what to do. Although scientists have been able to learn and do a lot more, the storms will do what they want and not stop because of what we want.
Robert Sales's comment, October 2, 2013 3:53 PM
Interesting in the article it said that the drones were originally built for military observation planes. What I would like to know is why did the government decide to watch hurricanes and other tropical storms instead of for military operations. I would have like if the article had compared more about with the system in place now to track and watch these storms.

NASA and the government are not forecasting services

Colorado is experiencing major flooding and people are being forced out of their homes. Fifteen inches of rain fell on Sunday and has killed up to seven people. The flood is continuing to get worse and is taking major tolls on Colorado and the people. Image show that the water has no way of being stopped and is taking control of everything. The National Guard is trying there best to keep people safe and try and maintain the flooding before is takes out everything. This is something really important that we need to watch out for and continue to give our thoughts to the people who are being affected by this.
Andrea Fuller's comment, September 27, 2013 10:43 AM
I think that people should stop being dumb and get out. If they got out they'd be more safe.
Delaney Poole's comment, October 2, 2013 6:26 PM
I don't understand why people don't want to leave. I mean why don't they want to be safe?
