Summary "Become an eyewitness to the weird and wonderful ways of our world, from tsunamis to tornadoes, and discover nature's awesome potential with this Eyewitness guide. See how earthquakes, floods and hurricanes affect what lies in their path, and what measures we can use to protect ourselves from Mother Nature. Follow the journey of some of the most catastrophic disasters, and witness the rescue operations that followed. Learn, too, about the equipment used to predict natural disasters, from tsunami magnitude to the earthquake Richter scale and how studies help predict hurricanes, prevent avalanches, control wildfires, and survive earthquakes."-- Amazon.
