Hubbard, Ben, 1973- author

Look inside natural disasters and discover how they work! Natural disasters devastate communities. They reshape the landscape and can alter people's ways of life in an area for years after the event. Learn all about volcanoes and avalanches. Find out how they form, where they are most likely to happen and how scientists study them through diagrams and case studies. Explore how natural disasters work by cracking them open and looking at them from the inside. How do they happen? How are they destructive? What happens on the inside of each phenomena? And where in the world are the danger zones?
