Two part interactive toy from AP. The first one takes you on a cool animated walk through the 5 point Saffir-Simpson Hurricane scale, simulating the amount of damage along the way. The second maps out the path and category of every hurricane from 1851-2009.



ooops: Missed one, though it’s separate from the others… It includes a map of the empty homes in Florida (from foreclosures, amongst other causes) and animates the types of different types of damage a hurricane can cause (click along the top):
