It's been days since the hurricane blew past our area, but the effects of the storm are still coming to light day by day. My parents house still doesn't have power, and watching the news coverage is just heart breaking. The worst part for me is not the damage to people's beach front vacation homes, but those who lost their everyday homes and are suddenly homeless. I can't imagine how they're feeling right now.
Understanding the devastation of a Hurricane can be tough for an adult, but it can be even more puzzling to a child. Luckily, Sesame Street is prepared to help. They have a series of videos about the Hurricane, a Hurricane Tool Kit, and quick tips for parents and care-givers. For more information, check out the Sesame Street web site.
