Extreme Weather newspaper report 

Pick an example of extreme weather that has happened in the last 10 years to research. This could be a hurricane, a tornado, a snow storm or any other type of extreme weather. Write a newspaper article reporting on the event. Your article must include the following information: 

  1. Explain why the extreme weather happened 
    • What caused the extreme weather? (a diagram may be useful here) 
    • What parts of the world are affected by this type of weather? (a map could be used here) 
  2. Explain what happened during the extreme weather 
    • What kind of damage was caused (to buildings and to the landscape)? (a photo would be useful here) 
    • What were the impacts on people (how many people were injured, or even killed)? 

Your report should be written in your own words. It should be presented like a newspaper on one side of A4 and include photos or diagrams to help the reader understand the event. There is a template attached below that you can edit (just delete the text and type in your answers) or make up your own newspaper. Feel free to be as creative as you like! You have 2 weeks to complete this.
