Whether children hear about tornadoes and hurricanes on television, live in vulnerable areas or learn about severe weather at school, they are fascinated with – and terrified by – powerful storms. Kids want to know more about them, both to satisfy their curiosity and to ease their fears. This book explains everything about these storms, from how hurricanes get their names to what a tornado looks like from a distance. Readers will be amazed to learn that a tornado in Kansas once picked up thousands of ducks and rained them down to earth, and that a hurricane in Florida once caused 20 inches of rain in one day. They will feel more prepared for emergencies after reading that they should run to a ditch or basement during a tornado and be ready for storms with flashlights, radios, and bottled water.
