Introduction v2.0

Every year hurricanes ravage our coast causing damage to lives and property. I think that something has to be done to fix this. There has to be a clear plan to what has to be done. I think that one way to do this is to better understand the hurricanes. Once we better understand what we are dealing. Once we know about them we can better predict where they are going to strike, so we can better prepare those areas for being hit with a hurricane. I also believe that a better idea has to be formed about the role of state and national in disasters.

My research is coming along well. All of my resources are good, and they all have a wealth of information of the formation of hurricanes. My only fear is that my subject may be too broad to do a research paper on, but so far the information seems managable.
I have found that the main difficulty with research is that you have to organize all the infomation. To do this you have to keep your goals straight. So far my main question has not been changed at all. It is my goal to try and not to change my question at all because I don't want to further complicate my project.

At a Lose

I have no clue what I can do for my primary source. I have no connections to anyone in the hurricane business. The only people that could help me is my family in Florida, and that would only be witnessing a hurricane.

Hurricanes!!!

I have decided that I will do my project on the roots of hurricanes. I decided this because they have become a major problem for the United States. We are having to deal with these every year. The hurricanes kill people, destroy their homes, and damage our economy. I belive that maybe if we can find where they start and how they move we can better defend our country.
