Tropical Storm Debby is moving slowly to the Florida coast on Sunday, June 24. 

This brings strong winds and waves that forced the closure of about a quarter of offshore oil and gas production in the Gulf of Mexico.

Several Alabama beaches were closed due to rough surf.

According to an emergency management official, earlier on Sunday, it caused tornadoes that killed a woman, severely injured a child and wrecked homes in central Florida in rural Highlands County.

The National Hurricane Center maintained a storm warning for the Mississippi-Alabama border, extended warnings for Florida’s northwest coast to Englewood, and discontinued warnings for the Louisiana coast.

Residents were warned to expect storm conditions within 36 hours.

This is a disaster.

Killer Whale Killed Its Trainer

SeaWorld Logo

A killer whale killed a trainer at SeaWorld Shamu Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

SeaWorld Shamu Stadium is in Orlando, Florida.

A witness said that a whale named Tilikum jumped up and grabbed the trainer into its tank.

Tilikum, a male killer whale at Sea World, Orlando. The whale came from Canada where he drowned a trainer.

Killer whale is a type of dolphin.

Tilikum is a huge male killer whale.

It weighs 11,ooo pounds and is 22 foot long.

People from the Ethical Treatment Of Animals said killer whales are smart and oceangoing mammals.

They want people to stop keeping the killer whale in tanks and made them perform silly tricks over and over again.

I agree with them because the killer whales may get angry and kill other people.

Anyway I like to watch animals shows too.

I think the killer whale did not eat its trainer.

It must be a sad day at SeaWorld and the trainer’s family must be very sad.

Dawn Brancheau was a very good trainer.

Freezing Weather In Florida

It is freezing in Florida.

Usually winter in Florida is not very cold.

There are a lot of strawberries and oranges grown in Florida.

The cold temperature can destroy the oranges and strawberries.

Farmers have to spray water on the plants to save them from the cold temperature.

The water froze on the plants and protect them.

The frozen water is called icicle.

Icicle on plants are very beautiful.
