Whether it's the earthquakes shaking southern California or hurricanes whipping up and down the East Coast, natural disasters demand our attention, whether we like it or not -- and for good reason. Within a single moment, they can change our lives, without much effort. But why do these strange phenomena occur? Can they be predicted? Young readers will be intrigued by Natural Disasters as they discover for themselves how likely Earth is to be hit by an asteroid, how earthquakes are detected, and how plagues are created. Written in a simple prose style coupled with stunning photographs, this series accomplishes its purpose of answering the multitude of questions that fill children's heads when they hear about natural disasters.Few natural events are as devastating and terrible as hurricanes. They rip through entire coastlines, destroying everything in their paths. This book will send young readers into a whirl, learning new information such as how a powerful ruler once gave up war efforts due to hurricanes he believed were controlled by a deity. They'll also learn how hurricanes are formed and how fragile they really are. One thing's for certain; when it comes to Hurricanes, no one will be disappointed
