Acerca de

From School Library Journal:

YA-This valuable resource presents a wealth of information about a powerful weather phenomenon. Throughout the text, which claims to provide "Everything you need to know about tornadoes but didn't know who to ask," color-coded boxes highlight facts, myths, and checklists, providing easy perusal of the facts and trivia. There is an excellent section on weather basics and tips on reading the sky. The chapters on the development and structure of tornadoes offer understandable explanations of how they form, the various types, and the F-scale by which their power is measured. "Don't Just Stand There" focuses on safety and gives important guidelines on how to best protect yourself and your family. The authors give practical advice to victims, rescuers, and "tornado tourists." They even give guidance on dealing with post-tornado trauma as well as working with insurance companies and building to withstand strong winds. This informative and approachable volume has numerous colorful photographs, charts, and diagrams that clearly illustrate the text and provide something for everyone.-Mary Alice Giarda, Fairfax County Public Library, VA
