Modern weather forecasting has made it possible to monitor, track, and predict the path of hurricanes like never before. Even so, they have the power to destroy homes, cities, and lives. Combining hurricane history, first-person accounts, and the basic hurricane science, this book takes a closer look at the most terrifying and devastating storms of the Caribbean and the Americas and the stories behind them and what made them so unique and memorable in the annals of the North Atlantic hurricane history. Witness nature’s fury as some of the greatest and deadliest hurricanes come alive. Witness the rage of Hurricane Andrew, the great death toll of the Great Hurricane of 1780, the massive size and clean-up costs of Hurricane Sandy or the unbelievable flood waters of Hurricane Katrina batter Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. In this book—you will visit many of the greatest and deadliest hurricanes of the North Atlantic firsthand and their destructive aftermaths. Spanning more than five centuries and drawing on extensive archival research in Europe, the Americas and the Caribbean, this book emphasizes the continuing role of race, societal inequality, and economic ideology in the shaping of our responses to hurricanes.
