Destructive Hurricanes

Destructive Hurricanes
Each year during hurricane season, people near “Hurricane Alley” in the Atlantic Ocean brace themselves. They watch weather reports tracking tropical storms and hope the storms don’t develop into full-blown hurricanes. With wind speeds often reaching more than 100 miles (161 km) per hour and carrying massive amounts of rain, hurricanes blow in windows, uproot trees, snap power lines, and cause massive flooding. In this book, readers will learn how hurricanes form and how to protect themselves from the many dangers.

Collection Review: Angry Earth
“This series will draw in reluctant readers with its emphasis on destruction and spectacular photos, while the informative content and simple diagrams make it a strong introduction to earth science. Interesting tidbits ("The word 'blizzard' originally meant a large amount of gunfire") and historical accounts of both lesser- and well-known disasters (such as the 1889 flood near Johnstown, PA, and 1992's Hurricane Andrew in Florida) enhance the scientific facts. Vocabulary words are set in bold throughout the texts and defined in the glossaries. The many photos capture both the adrenaline of these forces of nature as well as the destruction they cause. Each volume ends with a spread that gives safety information and tips, e.g., Earthquakes advises that if caught indoors, "stay away from walls that may fall." Useful sources for diverse information.”
