Item Description...
Overview
Discusses the work of the weather squadron based in Mississippi, known as the Hurricane Hunters, who fly their planes into a hurricane to gather information about the size, direction, wind speed, and expected landfall of a storm.

Publishers Description
It's a sunny, beautiful day on America's southeastern coast. But out in the Atlantic Ocean, chaos is brewing. Waves are crashing. Winds are blowing. And the National Hurricane Center is calling the Hurricane Hunters!

A special weather reconnaissance squadron of the Air Force, these brave men and women fly their WC-130 Hercules aircraft into the heart of a two-hundred-mile-wide hurricane and collect information: in which direction the hurricane is heading, how fast it's moving, and how big it's growing. Before the end of their twelve-hour flight, the Hurricane Hunters will have gathered enough information to save many lives.

Acclaimed author and artist Chris L. Demarest takes you inside the storm with these real-life adventurers who risk their lives to keep our shorelines safe.

More About Chris L. Demarest

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Chris L. Demarest says: "A few years ago my wife and I brought our two-year-old son to an open house at a fire station. Ethan loved the big red fire trucks and I became totally enthralled not only by the trucks, but by the idea of serving my community as a firefighter.
"Being a full-time illustrator, I work at home, so I could be on call at any time. I took a lot of classes, passed some hard tests, and became a volunteer firefighter. I am on call for the Meriden, New Hampshire, station, where I now get to drive those big red fire trucks.
"I created Firefighters A to Z to show Ethan and other children what firefighting is really like. It can be an exciting job, but it's also a dangerous one. I hope to convey that through this book."

Chris L. Demarest currently resides in Meriden, in the state of New Hampshire.
