WRITING PROMPT: (50 PTS)
Using several realistic details from
the story “To Build a Fire,” write a
journalistic article on the incident
in the story (the man’s freezing to
death). [The article may have
some fiction in it such as the
man’s name, etc., but should read
like a newspaper account of the

14 dead as storms sweep through Fla.
By JIM ELLIS
Associated Press Writer
LADY LAKE, Fla. (AP) -- Storms blew through
central Florida early Friday, killing at least 14
people, flattening dozens of homes and a church
and lifting a tractor trailer into the air, authorities
said.
At least one tornado touched down.
Lake County spokesman Christopher Patton
confirmed the 14 deaths, 11 in Paisley and three in
Lady Lake, both towns in Lake County about 50
miles northwest of Orlando. No further details
were available.
Dozens of mobile homes near Lady Lake were
destroyed by the storms that hit in the middle of
the night. Chairs, beds and clothes were strewn
about yards, with debris hanging from trees. Some
homes were tossed from their foundations, while
others had their roofs ripped off.
"The most dangerous tornado scenario is a threat
for killer tornadoes at night, and that was the
case," said Dave Sharp, a National Weather Service
meteorologist in Melbourne.
The Lady Lake Church of God was demolished, its
pews, altar and Bibles left in a jumbled mess. The
31-year-old, steel-reinforced structure was built to
withstand 150-mph winds, the Rev. Larry Lynn
said.
By daybreak, parishioners gathered amid the ruins,
hugging each other and consoling Lynn. They
planned to clear the debris and hold Sunday
services on the empty lot.
"That's just the building. The people are the
church. We'll be back bigger and stronger," Lynn
said.
The storms moved across Sumter and Lake
counties around 3:15 a.m., then moved to Volusia
County, where 69 homes and a county medical
clinic were damaged, authorities said.
In The Villages retirement community, Lee Shaver
said he shielded his wife Irene with his body while
huddling in a closet as the roof peeled off their
home.
Fence posts launched as projectiles were embedded
into the wall of their home, Irene Shaver said.
"Every muscle and bone in my body shook," said
Lee Shaver, 54. "We don't know what to do. We
have no cell phones, wallets, IDs."
At least five crashes took place within a quarter
mile of each other near Interstate 4's New Smyrna
Beach exit, closing the highway for about three
hours.
