Assignment 4
Hurricane Isaac Report
Fall 2012



For this assignment you are asked to write a short report on Hurricane Isaaac.  The report should be no more than 2 pages long (double spaced, 12 point font) and should include information about the storm itself, the damages incurred, the areas affected, death toll, and measures that could have been taken to mitigate the damage and casualties.   You can include figures, but the space occuppied by figures will not count toward the 2 page limit.  Be sure to include references to the work you consulted and be particularly careful about attributing the source of the any figures you use.   Although you may use Wikipidia as one reference, but at least two other non-Wikipedia references must cited.   

This paper is due on November 11, 2012.  Turn it in by email, and make sure that your name is included in the filename that you send.
