Tropical Storms
1 Formation
1.1 1. THUNDERSTORMS drift over warm waters
1.2 2. WARM AIR RISES which creates a TROPICAL DEPRESSION
1.3 3. Due to earth's rotation, the warm air starts to SPIN. Air cools and FORM CLOUDS
1.4 4. More warm air is sucked in and rises faster and the cool air sink to FORM AN EYE
1.5 5. As storm passes over warm waters it DRAWS IN MORE FUEL making it intensify
1.6 6. As it hits LANDFALL or passes over cooler water, the storm DISSIPATES
2 Protection methods
2.1 MEDC
2.1.1 Build embankments (leves)
2.1.2 Monitor global climate changes / Monitor the path of the storm to predict its path
2.1.3 Storm proof buildings / strict building codes / Windproof tiles / Waterproof windows / stronger foundations
2.1.4 Educate in schools / Leaflets / Advertise /
2.2 LEDC
2.2.1 Built shelters for evacuees
2.2.2 Educate the people
2.2.3 Educate woman in what to wear if need to swim
2.2.4 Builds homes on stilts to avoid flooding and destroyed by storm surge
3 Predicting the path
3.1 1. Where is started
3.2 2. Direction it is traveling
3.3 3. Where is finished
4 Future Trends
4.1 Global Warming - warmer waters
4.2 Natural Cycle
4.3 El Nino - SOUTH PACIFIC - change ocean circulation
5 Effects
5.1 High Winds
5.1.1 Fuel the storm
5.1.2 Weaken Buildings
5.1.3 Trees fall down - block pathways / can't rescue people
5.1.4 Communication lines disconnect - can not reach people
5.1.5 Loose debris - knock people out
5.2 Heavy Rain and Storm Surges
5.2.1 Flooding
5.2.2 New Orleans was like a basin
