Extreme Weather: A Guide & Record Book

封面
W. W. Norton & Company, 2004 - 304 頁
Extreme Weather contains a compilation of weather statistics from more than 300 weather stations across the United States which altogether represent areas where over 90% of the U.S. population resides. This book also serves as a weather guidebook; providing information about those places in the United States and around the world where weather is at its worst.
Also included are historical examples of some of the more bizarre weather events observed: heat bursts, electrified dust storms, snow rollers, pink snowstorms, luminous tornadoes, falls of fish and toads, ball lightning, super bolts, and other strange meteorological events.
