Description:

In this activity, learners discover how the extent of various wind speeds changes in each of the four quadrants around a hurricane. Learners use data from the 'present' location of Hurricane Bill (2009) to plot the distance of various wind speeds that extend from the center of the storm. This resource includes brief background information about hurricanes and forecasting as well as an explanation of the Hurricane Bill data used in this activity and how small increases in wind speed can cause increased potential for damage.
