A Great Book For Tornado Season


Warnings explains how meteorologists work amazingly hard to provide life-saving warnings of tornadoes, hurricanes and aviation hazards. A review from Barnes & Noble:

I love reading books about the weather, and there are several great books out there about grand-scale disasters that shape us. WARNINGS looks at these storms through the lens of a meteorologist dedicated to predicting storms. Mike Smith shows us how these major storms have shaped our understanding of the science of weather, as well as how our growing understanding of weather shaped our ability to warn citizens, plan for disaster, and ultimately save lives. It is also a history of the meteorologists who continued to study dangerous weather and a government that stymied them at almost every turn. It's a smart, fascinating, and highly accessible read.

It is available from booksellers everywhere as well as B&N and Amazon
