• how supercell thunderstorms form and how they spawn tornadoes

Tornado Alert! (revised, ed. 2)

“...This book is part of a series called Disaster Alert! which provides interesting information on the causes of disasters...The chapters are filled with many excellent photographs and illustrations. Along with facts about tornadoes, some myths and beliefs are presented...Science teachers need to seize teachable moments such as disasters as an opportunity to help students learn more about how the movements of the atmosphere produce the disasters we call tornadoes, such as the ones that hit communities in the Midwest every year.” —National Science Teacher’s Association, 04/11
