There's no question about it: Hurricanes are becoming more frequent and getting worse as climate change occurs. These incredible forces of nature form over warm ocean waters near the equator. Their violent winds and heavy rains can cause great destruction and even loss of life. Luckily, technology has progressed enough that many places get at least some warning before a storm hits. In this book, readers learn more about what causes a hurricane, how they are classified and named, and how hurricanes are predicted. Safety tips for before, during, and after a storm are also included.
