Can be used to create a case study on the impact of Hurricane Floyd on Florida and North Carolina in 1999 (teachers should check their exam board’s advice on the age of case studies): primary and secondary effects, the responses and prior preparation for hurricanes. Could be used as a discussion about what would need to be put in place if hurricanes became more frequent in the UK due to climate change.
