Hurricane Strike!
A multimedia learning package created by COMET®, Hurricane Strike! is aimed primarily at middle school students and combines disaster safety and preparedness with science instruction. It also dovetails with science and safety content in the American Red Cross Masters of Disaster curriculum. If you have a T1/DSL line (or equivalent), you can access Hurricane Strike! directly from the web. If you have a slower connection, you should download the module to your hard drive and run it locally.
