A Good Lede

This story from the New York times has what I think is a good lead. This story about Hurricane Irma is talking about the damage it has left in the Caribbean before it heads for Florida. It summarizes all you need to know from the story in the first paragraph. You wouldn’t have to read past there if you didn’t have time or if all you wanted to know was the general effect of the Hurricane.

    Someone else used this same lead. It does prvide a good summary. It does use good verbs, but it’s too long. I would cut the last clause.
