Blizzards, part of the Disasters Up Close series, takes you inside these violent, snowy windstorms to show how they affect people and communities. When the Great Blizzard of 1888 paralyzed New York, traincars couldn't run, thus prompting an underground subway system. Accounts of the SuperStorm of 1993, which spanned the eastern United States, tell how blizzards can even bring modern cities to a standstill. The text explores the science behind blizzards as well as how these storms have shaped, and continue to shape, the human world.
