Storms are terrifying, awe-inspiring and provide an unparalleled thrill to those who encounter them - and survive. This highly illustrated book, in the same format and style as Disasters at Sea, brings storms vividly to life. The gripping text recounts the experiences of small boats and large ships fighting their way to safety, and the spectacular photography brings home the sheer power of nature. All in all, a gripping and fascinating read. Chapters feature: * what conditions whip up storms * experiences of small boats and ships in storms * the formation of hurricanes, typhoons and cyclones * whirlpools, maelstroms, monsoons and tsunamis * the effects of storms on harbours and harbour entrances * the impact of global warming
