The ground shudders and a huge crack rips open the earth. A towering wave races towards the coastline and slams into a city. These aren't scenes from a film but just two of the many natural disasters that affect our planet. They can strike suddenly, without warning, and often leave devastation in their path. From volcanoes and hurricanes to tsunamis and wildfires, this book explains why these disasters happen, reveals the deadly destruction they leave behind ... and shows how we can protect ourselves and others when they occur.
