Wind, rain, hail, thunder, and sand are all aspects of a storm. Nowhere on Earth is storm-proof. From tornadoes to blizzards to sandstorms, the weather can be a dangerous threat to people. Scientists called meteorologists study what causes storms and when and where they may occur. For more information on weather, read Weather Scientists, another book in the Mission: Science series.
