Hurricane

Hurriunce Paloma hit cuba this week and destroyed hundreds of homes. The storm was a category 4 and had winds of up to 145 mph. The article on NBC had stories from a few people who surivived the storm. They also touched on all the the damage caused by the storm. About a third of the article was about past storms that had hit the area and compairing them to this storm. About a third was a personal story about someone who lost everything in the storm. There were a lot of quotes that made you feel sympathetic towards those that lost things.

The article in the star tribune was much shotter and consise. It focuses on the basic information and has a couple quotes but it doesnt get into an indepth personal story like the NBC article does.
