Dear Barbara,

We did it! We just reached our goal of 1000 clean jokes at JokesByKids.com. I know a lot of them are groaners, but the kids love sending them, reading them and sharing them. And we love publishing them.

All I can say is … a thousand thanks and keep those jokes coming. We are on our way to 2000 jokes!

Join the fun by subscribing to the Jokes by Kids Newsletter or submitting your own favorite jokes at:

See ya on the Net,

#3. Hurricanes

by Barbara J. Feldman

Hurricanes Printable (** for premium members only)

The official Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico hurricane season starts on June 1, ends on November 30, and averages seven named storms. Unfortunately, the 2005 Atlantic season was record breaker. Twenty-eight storms reached speeds of thirty-nine miles per hour, the threshold for being named by the National Hurricane Center. Among them, Hurricane Katrina was the deadliest and costliest hurricane in U.S. history, and Wilma the most intense Atlantic hurricane ever recorded.

AP Hurricanes
Associated Press hosts two amazing educational animations. How Storms Destroy illustrates “the typical damage caused by hurricanes at each of the five intensity categories on the Saffir-Simpson scale” to a typical house, a couple of palm trees and a mobile home. If you need more time to read the descriptions as you pass through each category, use the pause button. 150 Years of Ruin maps the path of historic hurricanes, viewable by decade, and also by costliest and deadliest.

Discovery Channel: Surviving Katrina
A companion website to a Discovery Channel televison special, Surviving Katrina weaves a story with video clips, photo galleries, and a fact sheet called “Get The Numbers.” Best click is the interactive Katrina Timeline, where you meet nine survivors, and follow them from August 26, 2006 (when Katrina turns toward New Orleans) to September 3, 2006 (when the evacuation is complete and President Bush orders 7,200 active troops to the region.)

Howstuffworks: How Hurricanes Work
“According to the National Hurricane Center, the word ‘hurricane’ comes from the name ‘Hurican,’ the Caribbean god of evil.” Visit Howstuffworks to learn what a hurricane is, how hurricanes form, and about the three main parts of a hurricane: the eye, eye wall and rain band. In addition to links embedded throughout the article, at the end there is a list of related Howstuffworks topics (such as “What is a levee?”) and a hot list of other hurricane sites.
