India is the home of tigers. Every year tigers kill many people. The tiger, however, does not

always eat men. It likes wild animals better. It is only when the tiger is old or wounded (受伤的) that it eats men. But once it has tasted the flesh of men, it goes on killing men for food. When such kind of things happen, people are afraid. They have to stop working in the fields.

There are many ways to put an end to such dangerous animals. One way is that some men with long guns (枪) ride on elephants while other men drive the tiger towards them.

Another way is for a hunter to sit in a tree near the place where a tiger has eaten somebody. If the tiger comes back for another meal, the hunter will kill it in the hiding place. A goat may be tied (捆;绑) to the tree for the tiger to kill.

The most dangerous way is to hunt a tiger on foot. But the man must be brave and can shoot well or he would be killed by the tiger.

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: “I am blind, please help.” There were only a few coins in the hat. A man was walking by.

What is a hurricane?

You may already know that hurricanes are storms that can cause devastating (毁灭性的)

waves, wind, and rain. They happen during “Hurricane Season,” which is from June 1st until November 30th in the Atlantic Ocean and from May 15th until November 30th in the Pacific Ocean.

Categories (类别) of Hurricanes

There are five categories of hurricanes, which are based on wind speeds. The categories help people know how much damage( 危害) a hurricane may cause because the greater the wind speed, the more dangerous the storm. For example, a Category 5 hurricane has winds over 155 miles per hour, which are strong enough to destroy the buildings along the shorelines completely.

Hurricane Dangers

When a hurricane happens together with heavy rainfall, there can be a devastating flood. The centre of a hurricane is called the eye. While most of a hurricane has dangerously strong winds, the eye is actually (事实上) a calm area in the storm. When the eye of a hurricane passes over land, people might think that it’s over, but before long the wind and rain increase again as the second part of the hurricane moves through.

Hurricane Safety Tips:

There is no way to stop a hurricane or make it change direction, so if you ever find yourself in the path of a hurricane, be sure to remember the following safety tips.

·Be sure you have a radio, batteries, fresh dinking water, and enough food.

·Tell neighbours, friends, and family members your emergency plans. Tell them where you’ll go if you need to leave your home.

·If you live near the ocean, leave your home and travel to a safe place. You could stay with a friend or a family member, in a hotel/motel, or in an emergency shelter area.

·Stay inside during the storm. You could be seriously injured (受伤) if you go outside.
