Summary
"Flash floods, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, mudslides, thunderstorms, and wildfires--these devastating events are happening around the world at an alarming rate. As CNN's meteorologist, Bonnie Schneider reports daily on these natural disasters, explaining when they're likely to strike, and telling viewers how to respond when they do. In Extreme Weather, Schneider distills that information into a guide for readers. She interviews experts from a wide variety of agencies--from FEMA to NOAA--to provide a comprehensive understanding of the science behind weather patterns and the latest thinking on how to act in dangerous conditions. Ranging from topics that cover every season and every climate, Schneider introduces the reader to the best course of action during weather emergencies, including: *how to move around in heavy snow *how to handle extreme weather scenarios in your car, outside, or at home *how to predict potential dangers when planning a camping trip or vacation *what you need to have at home to prepare for floods, earthquakes, or severe storms*how to create a family evacuation plan for different emergencies *making sure your beloved pet is taken care of in time of disaster Extreme Weather provides details on what to have in emergency safety kits as well as how to make a family disaster plan"--
