When disaster strikes
EXTREME HURRICANES & TORNADOES
Extreme Hurricanes and Tornadoes another book of two halves! The development and geography of a hurricane/cyclone is explained, with the effects of devastating storm surges on land, why and where these happen, and of raging wind and torrential rain. Tornado Alley in the USA is the context for talking about those (quite mystifying) sucking vortexes, their ‘anatomy’ and effects, with homes, cars and trees being tossed in the air and smashed up.
