Format: Paperback
Bryan Norcross did a teriffic job with this paperback book its about 250 pages of easy reading. He writes about things like: what a hurricane is, Past storms of the years, modern storms, FAQ's. He then talks about life in a hurricane zone. He tells you things like where to park your car, where to be in your house during the storm, to evacuate or not to?, what to have on hand during the storm, what to do when winds approach certain levels. He then talks about storm surges, insurance claims, etc. He gives a summary of what a Hurricane is, and how he feels about things like Hurricane Categories 1-5, and 5 day hurricane tracks!! The book is overall a must to have for those in dangers harm, it includes several check lists of things to do, before, during and after the storm. I give this book a 4 out of 5 star scale, its GREAT!

A meticulously written and insightful look into hurricanes and tropical storms, their history and their affect on human lives.

Written by a man who has BEEN THERE!.

The "post-mortem" on Katrina and the 2005 Hurricane Season is worth the price by itself.

Highly recommended

This is a useful guide for people to reference in hurricane prone areas. It has the basics of preparation along with some things that are also common suggestions in tornado prone areas, such as putting a mattress over you and your loved ones in a bathtub or a central room in your home, etc., what to do post hurricane, etc. Most deaths occur AFTER and not during the storm. Preparing for no electricity and local services, including no gas available, drs. offices backlogged, no water and on and on. The basics of living can be lacking for some time and believe me, it is not fun, especially in the heat of the summer. You learn very quickly how much we take for granted.

Living in Southeast Florida for over 20 years, I was well prepared for each and every hurricane season because I took weather events very seriously having grown up in upstate NY. There, we had to prepare for extreme weather every winter including blizzards, ice storms and in the summer months severe and damaging thunderstorms and tornado threats. If you live in hurricane prone areas it is every persons personal responsibility to take care of themselves, their families and to help those around them that are unable to do it for themselves. Communities rally with these threats most times before, during and after. I have seen it with my own eyes in S. Florida. There are also the people that ignore the threats as if there is nothing going on and because in "this day and age" nothing could possibly happen to themselves, their property, etc. Many will always have their heads in the sand.

Again, personal responsibility to pay attention to storm warnings is crucial. Many folks in New Orleans did not heed the warnings to evacuate, etc., and it is up to the local govts.

This is a very complete book for hurricanes and living in a hurricane area. Only four stars because I would like an updated version.
