UPDATE: I'll accept the stories and the podcast finished by Midnight on Monday.  The podcast should be in MP3 form, either mailed to me, or brought in a disk or flash drive.  The name of the podcast should have your name (at least one person in the group) and the hurricane name.



On this page you should create links to your individual pages for your severe storm reports. Your page titles should make sense and you should describe each page a little on this screen. Do not use your full names! Only use your initials.


Click here to find a page (scroll to the bottom) with some good links for referencing your work.

7-1/7-5 Severe Weather Project





Severe weather has an enormous effect on human history, washing away towns, capsizing ships, killing people from every walk of life. At the same time, humanity has learned how to cope and deal with most storms, minimizing the damage to property and the loss of human life. In this project, you and two other students will do a report on a severe weather event that happened in the United States (or sometimes other places).




For each project you should:

  1. Discuss the severe storm event in detail, including (but not limited to) when it was, where it was, what happened, what were the damages, what warning did people have, any relevant history. etc.
  2. Review what the historical conditions were like in the area at the time (how many people lived there, did the storm have a strong impact on the region’s development)
  3. Make a wiki that shows all this information, including photos or drawings (which can be done by you and scanned)
  4. Include a map that shows where the event happened, including the path, if appropriate (e.g., most hurricanes)
  5. Describe this type of severe weather, in detail, including how it forms, how common it is, etc.
  6. Have a complete bibliography for all information and images
  7. Provide a thorough explanation of what safety precautions someone should take to prepare for this type of event and what they should do during these types of events
  8. Make and record a podcast, of about five minutes about the event. You will need to include a script of it before you it is uploaded. Details will be posted.


  1. Make a poster about the storm event
  2. If four students are in a group they need to make both a podcast and a poster





Some of the storm events you can do are:


Great Hurricane of 1780
