Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy, she’s all over the news. As if the word “hurricane” isn’t scary enough, they’re not just calling her “Sandy”. They’re calling her a “Superstorm” and even “Frankenstorm”. Even though we don’t live in the path of Sandy here in Indiana, she’s still kind of scary.  Being from Indiana, we know what it feels like to be afraid of storms because we have tornadoes here. Just like the tornadoes here, hurricanes can be less scary if we learn about them. Knowledge is power – when you understand what is going on you feel safer; confident that you know what to do.

Wherever you live, Indiana or New Jersey, it’s important to remember that there are grownups out there that know a lot about storms and how to keep people safe. Meteorologists and scientists and policemen and firemen…plus all kinds of other people who are trained to know what to do during weather emergencies. On this page are books and websites that can help you understand Sandy and hurricanes in general, as well as what can be done to keep you and the people you care about safe.

Why is Hurricane Sandy such a big deal? After reading this article Time Science & Space: Why Hurricane Sandy Will Be Historic I think Sandy is getting so much attention because:

  • Sandy is a LARGE storm.
  • Usually, air pressure pulls hurricanes out to sea…but at this time of year, there happens to be a winter storm coming from the West and cold air coming from the North. These air pressures make Sandy come ashore instead of blowing out to sea.
  • The moon affects tides…today is a full moon.
  • Sandy is hitting in a VERY populated area – 50-60 million people could be affected
  • National Hurricane Center: Hurricane Sandy 
  • NASA Hurricane Sandy Video Gallery

Here are some websites, books and a video to help you understand Hurricanes and how to stay (and feel) safe during one:

RIP Neil Armstrong

RIP Neil Armstrong

American astronaut Neil Armstrong, the first person to walk on the moon, died on August 25, 2012. He was 82. Neil is perhaps best known for what he said as he stepped onto the lunar surface, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

A message to you from Neil’s family:

“While we mourn the loss of a very good man, we also celebrate his remarkable life and hope that it serves as an example to young people around the world to work hard to make their dreams come true, to be willing to explore and push the limits, and to selflessly serve a cause greater than themselves.”

President Obama has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff today (Friday, August 31, 2012) for Neil Armstrong’s Funeral. The half-staff flag is a mark of respect for his memory.

Here are some books you can read about Neil and the Apollo missions:
Neil Armstrong the First Man on the Moon Armstrong's Moon Rock To the Moon Neil Armstrong Meet the Famous Astronaut
Man on the Moon The First Lunar Landing First on the Moon The First Moon Landing
Eight Days Gone I Want to Be an Astronaut Footprints on the Moon Team Moon
