Natural Disasters

August 23, 2000 – The National Hurricane Center forecasts Hurricane Debby to pass through the Florida Keys as a Category 2 hurricane, with one computer model predicting a Category 4 hurricane in the area.This results in officials declaring a mandatory evacuation for all non-residents in the keys, causing a significant loss of tourism revenue for Monroe County. Debby dissipates before hitting the area, though its remnants produce heavy rainfall across southern florida.

August 6, 2001 – After meandering for several days in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, Tropical Storm Barry makes landfall at Santa Rosa Beach, producing heavy rainfall across much of Florida which peaks at 11.7 inches (297 mm) in Stuart. The storm kills two in the state and leaves $1.5 million in damage (2001 USD, $1.8 million 2008 USD).

August 12, 2004 – Tropical Storm Bonnie moves ashore on Saint Vincent Island, producing light rainfall and minor damage along its path.

October 31, 2007 – The interaction between Tropical Storm Noel and a ridge to its north produces strong winds and high waves along the state's eastern coastline.

Culture

In my culture are too many types of food but i like eat one the is called papa la huancaina and cebiche that is my favorite food and for music are too many of music but the most famous is the huayno, criollo that is most people hear and represent my country PERU.


Overall Reflection

What I like about these elements is the wildlife and history of Florida. These elements together make our community if it happens because if a tornado, earthquake etc these things and join the community. Wildlife also join our COMMUNITY because people can make a day to go to the field and see everything around and not be stuck in the house doing nothing. The Indians were chased back again, and the south side of Lake Eola was chosen to bury Orlando Reeves.As a past time i walk after school to relax and think about things that would help me
