Hurricane and Typhoon Alert! (revised, ed. 2)

“...This book is part of a series called Disaster Alert! which provides interesting information on the causes of disasters...The chapters are filled with many excellent photographs and illustrations. Along with facts about hurricanes and typhoons, some myths and beliefs are presented...Science teachers need to seize teachable moments such as disasters as an opportunity to help students learn more about how the movements of wind and water produce the disasters we call hurricanes and typhoons, such as Hurricane Katrina.” —National Science Teacher’s Association, 04/11
