# Final Hurricanes:

My program is an interactive informative video on hurricanes. Climate change is causing hurricanes to become more powerful and I wanted to explore this for this project. I did not really know what I wanted to do for this project when we first got it, but I decided on hurricanes because I have been affected by them. I remember when I was little Hurricane Sandy hitting Connecticut and being without power for weeks. Halloween was cancelled because of power-lines being down and there being over 2 feet of snow. I remember playing cards with my family around candles and putting our food from the freezer out in the snow because we did not have a generator.

I wanted to make this project be special to me, but also make people realize that climate change is affecting us, because most people who do not believe climate change is serious does not know how much a degree or two in earths temperature rising can cause.

To use my program is simple. All you need to do is use the arrow and shift key when asked to see more information and explore more hurricanes. You can pick what hurricanes to see in any order.

If I had more time I think I would have explored adding some sounds, and possibly a conclusion at the end.

Here are some of the images I made:
