Hurricanes: The Science Behind Killer Storms

With powerful gusts of wind, sheets of rain, and a deadly storm surge of water, the massive hurricane flooded large swaths of New Orleans. In Hurricanes: The Science Behind Killer Storms the authors examine with step-by-step detail how these natural disasters develop, the scientific methods used to track and predict them, and the measures families should take to protect themselves.

Part of The Science Behind Natural Disasters series, written by Alvin and Virginia Silverstein, and Laura Silverstein Nunn. Each title is 48 pages, full color illustrations, ISBN 978-0-7660-2971-2.
