    My name is Harrison Hertzberg, I am a journalist at the Bird Eye News, a high school newspaper at Forrest Bird Charter School in Sandpoint, Idaho. This is a very well written article, I think it is smart and preventitive to inform potential hurricane victims what they should bring and have if there is a severe storm warning. Feel free to message back, we would love to connect and collaborate with your news site.
