Summary
Hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, tornadoes: when these giant storms hit, they are natural disasters with huge impact! A master nonfiction storyteller, Simon Winchester looks at how, when, where, and why hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, and tornadoes start brewing, how they build, and what happens when these giant storms hit. His lively narrative also includes an historical look at how we learned about weather systems and where we re headed because of climate change. Stunning photographs illustrate the power of these giant storms
