Inside the hurricane : face to face with nature's deadliest storms by Pete Davies( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 846 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From apocalyptic devastation in Central America to a frantic race against time in Miami, Davies takes you as close to a hurricane as it's possible to go. He tracks the greatest hurricanes in history and recounts his experiences following and flying directly into the worst storms of 1999 with the scientists who do it for a living; he explores the science of why hurricanes occur and how to predict their onslaughts more accurately; and he describes the mounting panic of those frantically making preparations as 1999's biggest storm, Floyd, looms. Floyd is a bone-shaking, gut-twisting roller coaster for Davies and the scientists he's flying with, but the storm brings wretched fear and horror to those who must endure it on the ground. The survivors are left with nothing but their lives amid a corpse-strewn wasteland of swamp and wreckage.--From publisher description

"Italia '90 - Gazza cried and football changed forever. Once you could ignore football, avoid the back pages, turn the telly over, leave the pub. Now that's not possible because on 4 July 1990 in Turin's Stadium of the Alps Gazza cried, England lost and football changed forever. Pete Davies witnessed all of this first hand. The players, the hooligans, the agents, the journalists, the fans - the full cast of football's rowdy circus. For nine month he had access to the England squad and their manager, Bobby Robson, talking to them freely about their hopes, their fears, their methods and their lives. So this is the real story, the unedited verdion. One Night in Turin is the first and last book to give the inside story of the greatest show on Earth."--Publisher's description
