        How Media Literacy Helps You Talk About Hurricane Harvey with Your Students | PBS NewsHour

        For guidance on how to talk with students about Hurricane Harvey, you may want to read SAMHSA’s “Tips for Talking With and Helping Children and Youth Cope After a Disaster or Traumatic Event: A guide for Parents, Caregivers, and Teachers.”  

        Rescue operations are in full gear as the devastation from Hurricane Harvey continues. The storm has affected some 6.8 million people — about a quarter of the population of Texas, according to the Associated Press. At least 21 people have been killed by Harvey since its initial landfall on August 25, 2017 — this is an update to the broadcast piece from the Associated Press. “We are striving for a new normal here,” said Brock Long, a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator heading up the response to the category 4 storm. He said it will take years for Texas to fully recover from the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey.
