From Booklist:

"Your mind could not accept what you were seeing." "The air was filled with 10,000 things." Eyewitness accounts of tornado survivors pepper this entry in the new Disasters Up Close series. An opening section covers famous storms, including the fictional twister that pulled up Dorothy and her dog in the Wizard of Oz. Later sections summarize how tornados form, how scientists predict them, and what to do to prepare. A large selection of color and black-and-white photographs show the awe-inspiring funnel clouds touching down, the brutal devastation to homes and families, and the cleanup efforts. Sidebars, such as "Tornado Myths & Facts," break up the straightforward text, which is made much more engaging by the wealth of individuals' quotes and personal stories. Extensive time lines of deadly tornados, a glossary, and source notes conclude this welcome addition to the science shelves. Gillian Engberg
