How Hurricans Affect the Weather in the Midwest
Transcript of How Hurricans Affect the Weather in the Midwest
My essential question that drove my research was: How do hurricanes affect the weather in the Midwest? My DRIVE project is about what affects hurricanes can have on the Midwest .
Hurricanes can affect the Midwest in many ways. Including rainfall, temperature change, flooding, and high winds.
Works Cited is on a separate piece of paper.

A significant contributor to my topic is Gabrielle Villarini.
Villarini studied the
collected from 3,090
U.S Geological Survey
stream gauge stations.
He compared all of the data to find how much rain a hurricane can cause in the Midwest.
What does a Stream Gauge Station do ?
Stream Gauge Station
A Stream Gauge Station is a number of machines on the side of a stream that records how much water is flowing through a stream at any instant.
The Midwest is in the center of the United States of America. The Midwest contains the states Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Ohio, and Wisconsin.
Hurricane Patricia that hit Mexico brought the Midwest rain. The Midwest experienced around 2 inches of rain in most parts. In some parts of the Midwest 3-4 inches of rain fell. The Midwest received this rain because of tropical moisture moving north.
Hurricane Patricia that hit Mexico caused a week of 70 degree weather in the Midwest. The hurricane that hit Mexico was not the full reason of the high temperatures in the Midwest. Most of the reason why we had such high temperatures was because of an
El Nino. An El Nino is specific weather patterns that can cause a sudden change in temperature, all over the world.
Hurricane Patricia that hit Mexico brought flooding to the Midwest. In very few parts of the Midwest rain fell at 1-3 inches per hour. This caused flooding on roads that led to car accidents.
Hurricanes can cause high winds in the Midwest. Winds can get very high in the Midwest, sometimes reaching 60-90 miles per hour. These winds can flatten crops, and blow away houses. All of this can be very costly in money and lives.
