Mangled by a Hurricane!

From the Series Disaster Survivors

On August 28, 2005, Trina Peters heard some alarming s—-Hurricane Katrina was headed straight for her hometown of Orleans, Louisiana. Though officials recommended evacuating the city, Trina and her daughter decided to stay in their home. However, the powerful hurricane caused their house to flood, and they had to climb up on their roof to stay above the rising water. Stranded on the roof in roaring winds and pouring rain, could Trina and her daughter survive the storm? Eyewitness accounts and incredible photos bring to life the experiences of ordinary people who faced catastrophic danger—and lived to tell their stories. Kids will discover the causes and characteristics of hurricanes, and learn about efforts to rebuild and prepare for future storms. Safety tips show young readers what to do in case a hurricane strikes.
