Hurricane Matthew

There has been plenty written elsewhere on the current damage being caused by Hurricane Matthew through the Caribbean and now up along the SE seaboard of the USA. It has caused significant damage to Haiti, where apparently almost all buildings have been damaged or completely levelled in some areas. People will be affected by this for decades to come.
There is an ESRI StoryMap here which uses some of the social aggregation tools to map the impact of the storm as it continues to gain and lose strength as it works its way northwards.


If you are going to be exploring the impact of this natural hazard or discuss with students, could I suggest the resources that I wrote for the British Red Cross
They are designed as a toolkit for exploring the impact of any major hazard event: during and after (short term and long term), so although they have a focus on the Nepal Earthquake, they are relevant for all major natural hazards.
