Official Trailer for "Into the Storm"
According to the Lansing State Journal, school buses from Perry, Michigan will be featured into the new twister movie "Into The Storm". Three buses were purchased by Warner Bros. to be destroyed.
As reported by First Coast News, a problem was discovered with nearly 600 Florida school buses sold in the past four years. The problem: these school buses were sold with a refrigerant hose for the air conditioning system that did not meet the Florida state specifications. According to the report, the problem only affected Blue Bird buses. It was said that the non-compliant air conditioning hoses do not pose a threat to the students.
For this month, to mark the traditional last full month of the school year in many school systems in North America, we are revisiting a topic that was introduced a few weeks ago. This looks into the cumulative impact and effects that the transportation of students has on the environment and economy as a whole.
