This lesson covers how people respond to the threat of tropical storms. It considers the role of prediction, protection, and planning in minimizing the impact of such storms. The role of the authorities and of individuals are considered. The lesson uses the example of Hurricane Katrina to explore how even the best-laid plans can go wrong and gets students to explore why it still is not possible to predict or protect oneself completely from the impact of a tropical storm. This resource is designed to match the requirements of the AQA 9-1 GCSE Geography syllabus.
