Batten down the hatches! A hurricane is on the move. These powerful storms start in the ocean, but they quickly make their way to the coast. Their winds turn debris into dangerous projectiles. Their rains cause flooding in low-lying areas. But can this damage be prevented? This low-level title introduces readers to hurricanes, including how they form, how meteorologists predict them, and what damage they cause to affected areas. Special features such as a map, a formation diagram, and a Saffir-Simpson scale chart bring readers right into the eye of the hurricane!
