Description
Acclaimed author and artist Chris L. Demarest takes you inside the heart of a hurricane with real-life adventurers who risk their lives to keep our shorelines safe.It’s a sunny, beautiful day on America’s southeastern coast. But out in the Atlantic Ocean, chaos is brewing. Waves are crashing. Winds are blowing. And the National Hurricane Center is calling the Hurricane Hunters! While those on land prepare for the worst, these brave men and women fly into the heart of a two-hundred-mile-wide hurricane and collect information. The crucial data that they gather provides better predictions of where storms are headed, allowing people to evacuate and saving hundreds, maybe thousands, of lives.
