One thought on “Six killed in the Cyclone Victor

  1. Hi Kary, you have managed to get all the main points up high in the story. Perhaps you could even bring the third paragraph into second position? In the headline, you don’t need to use “the” for Cyclone Victor, this can stand alone as ‘Six killed in Cyclone Victor’. Its usual o put headlines in present tense, so maybe Six die in … would be better? Also, as I said in class, using the word ‘attacked’ is inappropriate when referring to a cyclone (its usual reserved for an ‘attack’ by a human).
