Summary
"Step into the eye of the storm. Follow the action, from the first news reports of a hurricane called Katrina, to eyewitness accounts of those who survived the epic devastation she finally hits the Gulf Coast. Look back at the history of these catastrophic storms and examine the science of hurricanes. How do they form? Why do they rage through the same regions? Which were the deadliest hurricanes in history? And how can scientists predict their landfall? All the answers are here, in an exciting narrative brought to life with stunning National Geographic photography of storm-ravaged landscapes and cities."--B.I.P
