Powerful Earthquakes

Powerful Earthquakes
Some earthquakes are so powerful they change the landscape. Many are so weak people can’t feel them. Even with advances in science, seismologists still can’t accurately predict when an earthquake will strike. However, we now know a lot more about where an earthquake is likely to occur. In this book, readers will learn about plate tectonics, faults, and seismic waves. They’ll read about historic earthquakes, see photographs of the aftermath, and learn how to prepare for an earthquake’s mighty tremors.

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.”
