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):
The Associated Press has an interactive about Irene, but it also includes information on other hurricanes.
Teaching and Learning About Hurricanes is from The New York Times Learning Network.
Hurricanes and Cyclones is an interactive from the Guardian newspaper in the UK.
The Deadliest Hurricanes In U.S. History is a slideshow from TIME Magazine.
The Associated Press has several good interactives:
Forces of Nature comes from National Geographic
How Hurricanes Work comes from How Stuff Works.
“Your Hurricane Emergency Kit: Here’s What Should Be in It” comes from TIME Magazine.
Storm Season! How, When & Where Hurricanes Come From is an infographic.
Hurricane categories is from USA .
Hurricanes of Yore: Vintage Newsreels of Devastating Storms is from The Atlantic.
The Associated Press has a new interactive on hurricanes.
Al Gore and ‘Category 6 hurricanes’ is from The Washington Post.
