From award-winning children's book authors Judith and Dennis Fradin, the Witness to Disaster series combines historical accounts of some of history's most powerful storms and natural disasters with an exploration of the science behind the storm. How can we predict the landfall of hurricanes? Why do volcanoes erupt and where were the deadliest eruptions in history? What's it like to live through a massive earthquake? These questions and more are answered in Witness to Disaster.
