Hurricane Warning!!!!! Good Morning! It seems that we have a bit of a sticky situation this morning, and you have been asked to help. We have just received word that a hurricane has formed and is heading towards land. Hurricane Wally is currently located at 10 degrees north latitude and 55 degrees west longitude. We need to warn the people in the Caribbean islands who could be in Wally’s path. Unfortunately, all communication systems are down. You and your group have been selected to fly from Wisconsin and warn the islands in the Northern Caribbean. The pilot is having a problem with navigation and needs your assistance. Please give the pilot the absolute location of the following places (using latitude and longitude) so you can arrive as soon as possible! Nassau, Bahamas Lat. _______ Long. _______ Havana, Cuba Lat. _______ Long. _______ Kingston, Jamaica Lat. _______ Long. _______ Port Au Prince, Haiti Lat. _______ Long. _______ Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic Lat. _______ Long. _______ San Juan, Puerto Rico Lat. _______ Long. _______ In order to return home to Wisconsin safely, you only have enough time to fly to the six locations listed above. Lucky for you, you have been ordered to go home. However, you need to assist other people by alerting them that they are in path of the hurricane. You do not need to use absolute location of each island. You just need to tell the leaders in each island they are in danger! You should concentrate on the Lesser Antilles (Leeward and Windward Islands). You are able to warn eight islands. Choose the eight islands you think you should warn. In making your decision, take the following into consideration: Proximity to Caracus Possibility of being in the storm’s path (it is moving northwest) Location of the island in relation to other islands (relative location) Can the people of the island warn other islands from their position?
