Hurricanes

Graphic Natural Disasters

With strong graphics and in spellbinding fashion, Hurricanes will “blow” away all readers. Setting the stage with concise information on what hurricanes are and how they form, the book goes on to present scenarios from three major hurricanes: the Great Labor Day Hurricane of 1935 that hit the Florida keys; Hurricane Andrew, which hit south Florida in 1992 and caused devastating damage; and the most recent of these killer storms, Katrina, which hit New Orleans and the Gulf states in August 2005. Readers will feel the winds blowing and see the waters rising as they read about some of nature’s worst storms.
