With Hurricane Earl approaching the United States and this past weekend being the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, I thought it would be a good time to start creating another “The Best…” list.

In addition to the resources on this list, many more can be found at A Compilation Of “The Best…” Lists About Natural Disasters, especially many Katrina resources in The Best Websites For Teaching & Learning About New Orleans.

Here are my choices for The Best Sites For Learning About Hurricanes (and are accessible to English Language Learners):

Teaching and Learning About Hurricanes is from The New York Times Learning Network.

The Deadliest Hurricanes In U.S. History is a slideshow from TIME Magazine.

 

How Hurricanes Work comes from How Stuff Works.

“Your Hurricane Emergency Kit: Here’s What Should Be in It” comes from TIME Magazine.
