Florida-based Cubicco's line of flatpack homes are tougher than they look, and are rated to withstand hurricane wind speeds of up to 180 mph (290 km/h). They're also green too, and come with a number of sustainable options, including rainwater harvesting and solar power.

EXTANT OF HURRICANE ELENA  >>>>   Hurricane Elena, with wind speeds in excess of 110 miles per hour (177 kilometers per hour), was photographed in the Gulf of Mexico on Sept. 1, 1985. Almost the entire storm can be seen in this high-oblique photograph. Check out the thunderstorms with their overshooting tops, embedded in the spiral bands that lead back to the eye of the hurricane. Some portions of the eye wall, where the most destructive winds of the storm occur, are also visible. This storm…

During this activity students working in pairs will simulate hurricane-speed winds in a body of water.  The lab will teach 6th grade students two facts about hurricanes; wind speed increases ocean wave height and higher waves occur in shallower waters.
