Transcript of Storms With Water

Stormy Waters
Hurricanes and floods
Map of hurricane Sandy's path
This shows the eye of a hurricane and the path of Sandy. If you ever watch the news they show a hurricanes path like this.
List of Hurricane Names
The list that is shown, lists the names of hurricanes since 1998 to 2012. There are about 33 shown.
Venn Diagram
The differences between a hurricane and a flood is that floods can happen anywhere rain falls, can happen at any time, and over flowed rivers cause it, while hurricanes have high winds, center of the storm, and happen usually in a particular seasons. They both have similarities which are that they both include water, can kill people, and can both take up days to form.
Cause and Effect
For the first cause and effect if a thunderstorm happens and raises the water level of a river or lake. Then it will overflow and cause a flood. For the second cause and effect a hurricane will be caused by high winds in 80 degree ocean water. Then it will form an eye, which causes hurricanes.
The topic I selected is about hurricanes and floods.Hurricanes are storms with high winds and form in 80 degree ocean water. Floods happen when there is to much rainfall and a lake or river overflows.
This is a hurricane
This a flood
1.Can kill people
2.Include water
3.Hurricanes cause floods
4.Can both take up days to form

1.Happen anywhere that rain falls
2.Happen because of too much rainfall in body's of water
3.Can happen at any time
1.High winds
2.Have an eye, A.K.A center of the storm
3.Can release 2.4 trillion gallons of water
4.Happens in a season in the Atlantic oceans

What damage a flood can do
This video shows what a flood can cause. Foods cause a lot of damage. Imagine cleaning up and spending money to pay for the damages.

Lots of rainfall raises water in a lake starts to overflow
A flood happens
High winds cause an eye of a hurricane
A hurricane is caused
A hurricane destroys a shore town
solution for mayor of town
Use money to rebuild the town and beach and make it ready for any other storms in the future.
solution for resident in town
1. rebuild house using money out of pocket, insurance, and what FEMA and other organizations give the resident
2. The resident can leave everything that was at their house or building and move to another town
A flood destroys a town
A solution to prevent future floods
Build dams or dig trenches to prevent storms
Solution for mayor and resident
This problem is that a hurricane destroys a shore town. The mayor has to rebuild the town. A resident has to either rebuild and pay for damages or move away leaving all memories at that house. I feel bad for everyone that houses got destroyed and lost everything.
1.pay for damages
2.leave town and buy new house
1.pay for all damages and rebuild
Problem and Solution
This problem is that a flood destroys a town. the mayor will have to pay for damages and rebuild town while the residents can either stay and rebuild or move to a new location. I would also feel bad for these people that lost everything in their life.
Step 1
Water in ocean is above 80 degrees so eye can form
Step 2
water pressure starts to rise and starts to circle.
Step 3
wind speed rises to 38 to 39 miles per hour it becomes a tropical storm
Step 4
wind reaches 74 miles the tropical storm then becomes a hurricane
Step 5
the storm then receives a category rating of 1 to 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale
Chronological Order
How a Hurricane Forms
It's important that these events happen in order because you can't have 74 mile per hour winds and then have wind start to form. THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE!
During this prezi you should of learned learned about the similarities and differences of hurricanes and floods and learned about the horrible events they cause.
