People are going to want to have their friends and families back and since they are stranded people could get mad. Blocked roads will hurt transportation and trade and somebody should probably help with cleanup efforts so people can get home and travel to where they need to be.

Mexico was hit with a huge storm. More bad weather is on it's way to the country. People have lost their houses and family members. The country of Mexico should help their people. They need to be providing with food, shelter, and water.

Dontae Morgan's insight:

I chose this article because I think that even though its not in the US its still important. I think its important because the last time there was a tsunami all the trash and junk floated all into the US which makes the beaches nasty. Another thing is that it could effect the ocean animals. And the last thing is the it would mess with our tradeing with japan.

It is messed up because the school should not have put the children on the bus. They are responsible and I think that they should have to pay that amount. There is no amount of money that replaces a child.

This was really cool. I think it would be great if something like this could happen and we could know when a natural disaster would be coming. This would help with being able to be ready for whats coming because you would be able to protect yourself and your family for when the time comes

I think thats an excellent idea. Everyone seems to be always updated on the latest news and by sending out warning signs people would get the news quickly.
Diana Romero's comment, October 1, 2013 9:28 AM
I agree that this is a well thought out way to inform people about dangers, however there is a large amount of people that rely on television and radios as well. But, if other systems aren't available at the moment, then twitter is a good choice to inform a large amount a people at one time. Either way, word spreads so most others that may not have twitter will still descry to the news.
Makenna Bogaard's comment, October 2, 2013 1:48 PM
I agree with you, this is a really good way to spread the word of a natural disaster coming. Most people are always near their phones or on twitter or something, so this is an easy way to get the word out.

Downgrading Oklahoma tornado could have long-term ramifications ... | Natural Disasters | Scoop.it
The downgrading of the El Reno tornado from the top of the Enhanced Fujita scale to a weaker rating could have lethal consequences, a nationally recognized weather expert warns.
Dontae Morgan's insight:

I chose this because i think that it is important. It is important because it effects the US in many ways. One is the money it will take to fix the damage after it goes through Oklahoma. Another is if the weather experts are wrong they could have had people already leave their home and that would make the public mad and that could start fights and maybe even roits with the US.

Diana Romero's comment, October 1, 2013 9:44 AM
I agree with you. If unpredictable disasters keep occurring and no one is informed, then taxes will surly get raised in order to pay all the damage. I also agree that it will impact us because it is happening here in the U.S. it may also cause weather changes in different states.
