Hurricane Dorian was a category 5 hurricane that rolled into the North American coast the last two weeks of August and beginning of September. It headed straight for the Bahamas and then hit Florida and the Carolinas and parts of Virginia. After the hurricane hit, the students of New Haven High School were asked a series of questions on the hurricane.
The first question was if they had any family being affected by the hurricane.
Freshman Tessa Schweich said, “I have an uncle in Florida. He is not actually on the coast. He needs to be prepared for winds and a lot of rain. He has been told to prepare for power outages. Also, he works for an insurance company, so he can expect to be very busy after the storm.”
“My cousins live in Florida and the hurricane might have [caused] some damage to their house,” answered freshman Blake McClure.
The next question asked was how could Hurricane Dorian affect New Haven.
One student said, “In New Haven, the main impact will be affecting people who have loved ones that are there worrying about them.”
“We probably won't see much change in our normal weather conditions,” replied another student.
“Hurricane Dorian will be affecting New Haven with less food from the east coast,” replied a NHHS student.
Another student replied saying, “[If the hurricane hit us] New Haven would be torn into shreds and would for sure not be a town anymore.”
