The Superstorm Hurricane Sandy

by Josh Gregory

Part of a Series: Disasters.

“Several hurricanes occur each year, but Sandy was different.” An excellent resource for research or discussion, this book describes the origin, progress, and aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Straightforward prose describes the meteorological conditions and devastation Sandy caused in its path from Jamaica to the United States. The text is supported by fact bubbles providing anecdotal descriptions of the hurricane’s effect on individual lives, and underscored by impactful photographs and charts. Supplementary pages describe the reactions of state and national politicians, and compare historical hurricanes to Sandy. Includes a quiz, a list of statistics on the effects of the storm, a list of texts for further reading, a publisher-approved Web site, a glossary, and an index.
