A gripping opening chapter follows the path of destruction left from Long Island to Canada by a deadly hurricane in 1938. With 600 casualties and devastating damage in an area taken completely by surprise, scientists vowed to learn all they could about the science of these storms in an attempt to forecast them and predict their paths so that residents could be forewarned. A clear account of what scientists have learned to date is accompanied by numerous diagrams and documentary photographs. (Ages 8-14)
