Why not watch the video clips below (about Hurricane Andrew and try to make a list of the primary and secondary effects of the storm.
The National Hurricane Centre predicted accurately where Hurricane Katrina would make landfall and how strong it would be. This technology is not so readily available to LEDCs, although many countries receive information from organisations such as the Joint Typhoon Warning Centre (Pacific) or National Hurricane Centre (Atlantic) to help them prepare for storms. There has been much more buidling in these aeas in recent years - so when a hurricane strikes, there is more infrastructure in its way and for it to damage!
Civilians will have their cars stuffed to the roof with all their earthly possessions, and will probably be a little crazy as they flee the hurricane.

During and after a hurricane, propane and other types of fuel may not be readily available and roads leading to your home or farm may be inaccessible.Know how and where to shut off the outdoor propane supply and indoor propane appliances.
Oil prices may increase (this was a significant effect in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina). Rich MEDCs, such as the USA, can invest in technology to predict the general area in which hurricanes will strike.
There is an annual Hurricane Preparedness Week in the USA when schools, businesses and families are all encouraged to pland for possible strikes in the forthcoming hurricane season.
A large propane tank may become dislodged from its service line and water and debris can find their way inside regulators and controls, causing potential safety issues.Look carefully around the entire area.

People living in areas affected by tropical storms are encouraged to have a hurricane emergency kit on standby and also to have thought in advance about how they will protect their home and belongings.
