6: Weather Activities | Weather Activities | To: Mrs. Murchinson | I Enjoyed all the activities, but the one I personally enjoyed the most has to be constructing the weather scrapbook. It is more of a wide- open minded project where where you can do anything, with the exception of some regulations. I learned about weather symbols and how to read a weather map. I also learned a lot about hurricane Charley. I can imply graphing, map reading, and hurricane tracking in real life. If worst comes to worst and there is no possible way to find the out what the weather is going to be, I can predict the weather by reading a weather map myself.

The Hurricane effected Jamaica, Cayman Islands, Cuba, Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina. The highest winds were sustained for a minute at 150 mph (miles per hour). Agriculture companies and owners were affected by Hurricane Charley. Approximately 95 percent of the sugar cane, bean, and banana crops were affected in Cuban territory. In Florida, Property damage was estimated at $5.4 million dollars (2004 USD), and approximately $285 million dollars (2004 USD) in agricultural damage.

14: Kashmir 2005 | The Kashmir Earthquake occurred in 2005 and affected areas of Pakistan, India, and Afghanistan. Most of the casualties from the earthquake were in Pakistan. Officials reported 74,698 deaths ("Kashmir Earthquake 2005"). Saturday, in the area that was affected by the earthquake, was a normal school day. Most students were at school when the earthquake occurred. A middle school for girls fell into the trench created by the earthquake. 120 girls went down with the school and as the earthquake continued the school were covered with boulders. There are videos of this event, and one shows a father talking to his daughter (she talking back) and screaming for help, while trying to push a boulder off. The boulders that fell on the school were so large that not even the cranes in Kashmir could move them. Of course if there were bigger cranes they could have moved the boulders but rescuers did not arrive in that area for two weeks. Many were buried under collapsed school buildings. (N/A) The earthquake came during the month of Ramadan, fasting, meaning that most people were at home resting after their pre- dawn meal. ("Kashmir Earthquake 2005") There was not enough time to escape. Reporters say that entire towns and villages were wiped out in Northern Pakistan in the Kashmir Area. Surrounding areas suffered greatly as well.
15: No precautions were given to the citizens (N/A). Kashmir is in Pakistan, one of the third world countries, so they don’t have any resources that identify when an earthquake is supposedly coming. Also, it is a mountainous region and the earthquake alone didn’t cause most of the deaths. Most deaths were caused because it took two weeks to get rescue teams to that area, because of severe weather, geographical region, and the roads were totally blocked. Most of the devastation hit northern Pakistan. In Kashmir, the three main districts were badly affected and Muzaffarabad, the state capital of Kashmir, was hardest hit in terms of casualties and destruction. Schools, hospitals, rescue services, police, and armed forces weren’t able to help. More than 70% of the casualties from the earthquake occurred in Muzaffarabad. Now, for Kashmir or the surrounding area there is no known device that detects earthquakes that are coming. There is a way to determine when a catastrophic event is coming though. Because the Kashmir area is mountainous they have such beliefs that say when a catastrophic event is coming the birds will fly towards the sky, and all land animals will scatter. Also, if an earthquake is to come again they will be more prepared to deal with it.
