Hurricane Irma – the second major hurricane of the 2017 season – wreaked havoc on the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Florida, and Georgia.

Before this storm, what did you know about hurricanes? Have you ever experienced one? If so, what do you remember doing to prepare for it?

How did you prepare for Hurricane Irma? Did you evacuate? Why/why not? What will you do differently/the same should you encounter another hurricane?

What are your thoughts on how news of the hurricane was reported (local news, national news, etc.)? Do you think they should have done anything differently? If so, what?
