The stormy weather has been the cause of over 200 call-outs to the State Emergency service, who are currently stretched beyond their capacity and struggling to rectify each issue.
Southern suburbs have been affected the worst, with Brighton Jetty severely damaged and expected to cost millions in repair costs.
Currently 35,000 homes are still without power due to severe damage from the storm,
Their power is not expected to be restored for a further 24 hours.
Residents were advised to stay in doors throughout the day,
The damage has been concentrated in southern suburbs.
Many of South Roads traffic lights are currently not working and police are urging people to stay home and avoid driving unless essential.
The Bureau of Meteorology reports the winds reached 110km/h today
The maximum temperature reached was a chilly 11 degrees
Conditions are expected to start improving at 6pm tonight.
Before starting the articles, I wrote down and filled out an answer for each WWWWWH,
I also created a structure of what I wanted to focus on in the article- starting with what seemed like the most important and the biggest audience pull. I referred to both of these throughout the process as a structural guideline. So that I understood both the audience I was writing for and the angle I would peruse.
I decided to target human interest in the first piece of writing, and focused on the outcome of the stormy weather in Adelaide as the weather itself had…
com) 1 In the book, Larson tells the story of Isaac Cline, the chief weather observer assigned to the Galveston, Texas weather station from 1891 to 1901. Mr. Larson, is a former “staff writer for The Wall Street Journal, and later a contributing writer for Time Magazine [who] has written articles for The Atlantic, Harper’s, The New Yorker, and other publications” (eriklarsonbooks.com) 2. This was his third book. He uses first person narratives, telegrams, and letters; many of which are…
Irene Sans was always focused in mathematics and science from a very early age. She attended Florida State University, where she graduated with a bachelor in Meteorology, minor in mathematics and concentration in Hispanic Marketing Communications.
While in FSU, she was the first bilingual deputy State Meteorologist on board at the Division of Florida Emergency Management – Emergency Operations Center where she would brief state officials about the weather conditions…
It goes without saying that change is hard. Regardless of the circumstances, whether positive or negative, it is an instinctual habit of people to generally seek the easiest and laziest way out of a problem. Especially when it comes down to a huge modern day issue like that regarding the consequences of inaction to human-caused climate change, a large majority of people are so inclined to finding an easy solution that they will simply adapt to or even ignore the effects of climate change so…
Isaac Monroe Cline was the American who thought he had the power to control the weather. Cline was the man in charge of the Texas Section of the new United States Weather Bureau in September of the year 1900. At this time, a hurricane ignored by Cline, swallowed the city of Galveston, Texas, leaving thousands dead. It can be argued that Cline was to blame for being so arrogant in not recognizing the inconsistent weather signs and acknowledging there was an unpreventable storm headed towards the…

Topic 1: Explain the difference between climate, weather, and meteorology.
The three terms climate, weather, and meteorology are all part of the same subject matter. However, they all have key differences from each other that make it especially important to be able to differentiate between each of them. Meteorology is the main category, while climate and weather are separate entities of it. Learning the…
has had on archeology, meteorology, and political or military surveillance. It will also include a brief discussion at the end of each topic where applicable, involving the impact Satellite Imagery has had on the welfare of the populace, urban development, the economy and what would be lost without the technology.
Research was mainly collected…

“The astronomer is, in some measure, independent of his fellow astronomer; he can wait in his observatory till the star he wishes to observe comes to his meridian; but the meteorologist has his observations bounded by a very limited horizon, and can do little without the aid of numerous observers furnishing him contemporaneous observations over a wide-extended area.” (Epsy). Meteorology is the study of climate change and weather, another word for them would be…
One of the great things about technology is that it saves more lives then we will ever know. Many lives took tolls before technology because we couldn’t sense anything like we do now. We can now see where storms will hit before they’re even a week old and we can announce the news so anybody in danger can seek shelter elsewhere out of the storm’s path. With the technology we have today, we could have prevented many people killed during the storm on Armistice Day. The loss of lives because of the…
Through this course I have seen that students learn science many different ways, but not all those ways are the best for learning. The best way that this 4th grade teacher could teach this weather and climate lesson/unit is by having the students be involved in hands on activities! If the students are able to go outside and record data for themselves they would really get to know the material better and be able to retain this information in their long term memory. They can look at patterns they…
