Synopsis

Super Storms by Cath Senker

Find out about the super storms that have hit the headlines over the past decade as hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons have devastated countries around the world. This book looks at three of these natural disasters from recent years in detail: Hurricane Katrina, that struck the USA in 2004, Typhoon Bopha, that hit the Philippines in 2012, and Superstorm Sandy, that devastated the Caribbean and the USA in 2012. Why are these occurrences are so frequent and destructive and what happens to the affected communities after the disaster has struck? The Planet in Peril series answers these questions and many more, looking at three case studies of recent natural disasters to see what happened, how people coped in the aftermath, and how governments, charities and aid agencies work together to rebuild devastated communities.
