Project 2: Research and Report on a Severe Weather Event

 

The Assignment:

Create and present a 5-7 minute slide show presentation of a severe weather event. Presentations may either be pre-recorded or presented live.

Presentations should include:

  • When and where the event occurred – a location map is required
  • Information regarding the typical weather conditions for this location
  • Had any sort of mitigation been carried out before the event?
  • Background information about the storm itself including
  • Who was impacted and how – photographs required
  • Describe the disaster response
  • Were mitigation efforts put in place to attempt to prevent such events from occurring in the future?
  • Is climate change expected to influence these types of events, in this location, in the future?

 

Keep in mind:

  • Slides should be visually appealing. They should not contain too much text.
  • No paragraphs.
  • Bullet points are okay.
  • Text that is included should be easily readable.
  • You must record yourself presenting your slides. This should be done on a computer rather than with a phone.
