Monster Hurricane Irene – level 1
Americans started to prepare for Hurricane Irene. They started to buy food and water. Hurricane Irene is coming to New York and New Jersey. It is a tropical hurricane. It is coming from the Caribbean. Some supermarkets are with no food and water. People in the cities near the Atlantic Ocean are preparing for a very big hurricane. Big hurricanes are not normal in these cities. President Barack Obama made the evacuation of 250 000 people. People must go from their homes. It is the first time in the history of New York City.
In the video you can see Hurricane Irene in the Bahamas. It was in the Bahamas on Thursday. And now it is coming to New York. It is stronger and stronger.
President Barack Obama spoke to 80 million Americans. He said, “be ready for a very big hurricane”. “If you are in the way of this hurricane, you must prepare now,” he said. “Don’t wait. You don’t have time.”
Buses and trains in big cities near the Atlantic Ocean are closed. This is not normal for these cities. People on TV say that winds can be 180 km/h fast and we can have 30 cm of rain water in all big cities, in New York too.
