Tornado Terror

Series: I Survived True Stories (Book #3)
by Lauren Tarshis
The tri-state tornado of 1925 was the deadliest tornado strike in American history, tearing through three states and killing a total of 700 people by the time it was done. The Joplin tornado of 2011 was a mile-wide monster that destroyed the heart of a vibrant city. Written by the author of the New York Times bestselling I Survived series, the true stories of these two events, plus fascinating facts and profiles of tornado scientists and storm chasers, create a unique and riveting nonfiction read.
