Storyboard Text

  • The city managers and the city council are in a meeting, in preparation for an upcoming hurricane and how much destruction this storm may cause to the city.
  • How much money will we need for repairs if this hurricane does tremendous amounts of damage?
  • The city managers explain how hurricanes are formed to the city council, and how the temperature can affect amounts of precipitation affecting the hurricane.
  • Since our city is nearby a large body of water, at the least of 81 degrees Fahrenheit, the water starts to evaporate and create precipitation, then pass over the air masses above it since warm air masses/ molecules are less dense.
  • Meteorologists from NOAA, can provide us weather maps that contain the information we need, showing how much precipitation there is near our area. Also, we can look at these weather channels which provide us with what temperature the day will be, and what direction that hurricane is facing.
  • The city manager explains how he gained information from weather maps about the patterns that occur in areas near oceans/ large bodies of water.
  • City Manager Meeting.
  • We have to alert our citizens to gather resources for example, canned foods, candles, etc. Since we won't have access to electricity during the Hurricane, we might need to use these candles as a light source.
  • A couple of days near to the event, the city managers are in a meeting discussing how they will inform their citizens.
  • We should alert our citizens through emergency emails so we can keep our citizens notified on how to prepare for this hurricane.
  • During the meeting, the city managers discuss about how many shelters they'll need, or how they'll communicate to all their citizens in preparation for this hurricane.
  • We also need to find out how many buildings we can use for people that need a place for shelter. We need to inform the construction workers ahead of time in meetings as well, so we can discuss about prices for repairs when the hurricane does damage to our city.
