Weather can be both a beautiful and dangerous thing to witness. Weather varies all over the world, with many places experiencing many different kinds in a short period of time. If you follow the news recently, you will see that the weather patterns are changing and storms and severe weather are increasing. The first evidence of this is an article on CNN.com, about the sea level change, which had “concluded that the rate of increase last century was extremely faster than during any of the 27 previous centuries.” Also, according to the Weather Channel.com, the north is going to be warmer and the south is going to be colder for the next coming months. This, combined with increased tornados and storms shows the growing need to be prepared. The best way to do this is by having an emergency kit in your car and home. With many people being at their jobs 40 hours a week, it increases the possibility of being caught in a storm while not at home. Click on the links below to read articles regarding the changes.
