Product Overview

Hurricanes.
Typhoons.
Willy-willies.
Cyclones.

Though the names may vary, these formidable, swirling storms are still the most devastating events in nature.

Seymour Simon makes vivid the power of hurricanes in his clear, approachable style. He describes the formation of hurricanes, the effects of heavy winds and rains, and the damage caused by flooding long after the storm has passed. Satellite images and dramatic full-color photographs add impact to stories about some infamous hurricanes, including Andrew, Camille, and Floyd. Seymour Simon also explains how forecasters rate and predict hurricanes -- and how best to prepare for them before they strike.

As in his other highly acclaimed books on natural disasters -- "EARTHQUAKES, LIGHTNING, STORMS, TORNADOES, VOLCANOES, "and" WILDFIRES" -- Seymour Simon introduces curious readers of all ages to one of the most awe-inspiring phenomena on earth.
