HurricanesBook - 2002
Hurricanes are among nature's most powerful--and most destructive--forces. This book takes a scientific look at how hurricanes form and travel, as well as their devastating effects on land, buildings, and people. The human response to hurricanes, including tracking techniques, preparedness policies, victim relief/rescue, and failed prevention efforts, is also addressed.
