Description
We live on a turbulent planet, whose surfaces move, erupt, quake, and burn. Gravity pulls at the land, causing dangerous masses of mud or rock to slide--destroying homes and taking lives. Huge slabs of snow careen down mountains, burying everything in their path. And, the atmosphere churns restlessly, causing wild winds to blow and heavy rains to fall. Go as close as you'd ever want to Earth's greatest disasters, vividly pictured. Look into the eye of the hurricane from high above, and at those funnels of fury known a tornadoes. Safely see lighting flash across dark skies--its electric streaks so beautiful and so lethal. From forest infernos to drought-ravaged lands, from fallen space debris to troubled waters rising into tsunamis, you'll find how these tragedies happen, how we can prevent them, and how we pick up the pieces after they occur.
