clean-up begins after storm dennis

Rescue teams have swung into action across the UK after the country was hit by Storm Dennis over the weekend of 15–16 February. Hundreds of homes were flooded and several people died. It is the second storm to hit the UK in two weeks, after Storm Ciara the previous weekend. Ireland and other countries in Europe have also been affected. What happened? Wind speeds of up to 91mph swept across parts of the country, and some areas had more than a month’s worth of rain in two days. This led to a record number of flood warnings for England on 16 February, with 595 separate alerts. At the time The Week Junior went to press, more than 400 homes had been flooded, and six people had died because of the bad weather.…

ghost ship washes up

In August 2019, the cargo ship MV Alta was spotted floating in the Atlantic Ocean with nobody on board. On 16 February, during Storm Dennis, the ship finally ran aground on the coast of Cork in Ireland. Now, the mystery of what happened to this ghost ship (a ship that is found drifting at sea without any crew) might finally be revealed. For now, Cork Council is asking people to stay away from the vessel until it can be inspected. The MV Alta was built in 1976 and was thought to have been hijacked in Guyana, in South America, where it was being repaired in 2017.…

australia hosts huge fundraising concert

On 16 February, a 10-hour fundraising concert was held in Sydney, Australia, to raise money for those affected by the bush fires. More than 70,000 people attended the concert, which had performances from local and international acts. The bush fires started in September 2019, causing damage across a huge area. The fires burned 120,000 square kilometres of land, destroyed thousands of homes, and at least 33 people have died. The concert was named Fire Fight Australia, and raised around £5 million on the day, with more donations expected after the concert is shown around the world. The money will be used to help fire-fighting services and communities who have suffered because of the devastating blazes. Money will also be given to animal welfare groups. Bush fires are a common event at this…

young activist wins bravery award

A17-year-old environmental campaigner from Northern Ireland has won the top prize at the first ever Amnesty Brave Awards. The awards celebrate people from across the UK who are making a positive difference within their communities. Anna Kernahan won the award for her commitment to weekly climate strikes. She has skipped school every Friday for six months so that she could campaign for better action on tackling climate change (the long-term change in world weather patterns, including rising temperatures, mostly caused by human activities). The awards were organised by Amnesty International UK – part of a global organisation that campaigns for human rights. Human rights are basic freedoms that everyone in the world should have, such as the right to education and freedom from slavery. Kernahan is part of the Fridays for Future…
