" Night of the Twisters," by Ivy Ruckman, is a fictionalized record of the tornado flare-up in Amazing Island, Neb., in June. A complex of supercell tempests slid on the city, dropping seven tornadoes in three hours, and guaranteeing six lives. Three of the tornadoes were anticyclonic, turning clockwise, which is abnormal. Ninety-nine percent of all critical tornadoes in the Northern Half of the globe, turn counterclockwise. 

" F: Annihilation, Endurance, and the Most Savage Tornado Flare-up of the Century," tells about the scandalous April, Super Episode of tornadoes. The book, by Imprint Levine, is a minute-by-minute true to life record of the episode, told from the individuals who survived it. Limestone Region, Ala., was at the tempest framework's focal point, assaulted by different F tornadoes, scarcely an hour separated. The destruction and stories of disaster developed a much more grounded story of expectation. 

" The Ideal Tempest " by Sebastian Junger, is an inventive true to life book that relates the loss of Massachusetts-based swordfishing vessel The Andrea Gail, and its team adrift. The vessel was gulped by threatening oceans, evaporating suddenly and completely during a brutal tempest in late October.

" Unexpected Ocean," by R.A. Scotti. The Classification storm carried serious breezes to southern New Britain, felling million board feet of timber, and causing more than fatalities. An enormous wind blast was estimated at the Blue Slope Observatory in Milton, Massachusetts. Known as the "Long Island Express," the tropical storm was moving at a forward speed when it made landfall — shouting north dangerously fast when climate estimating was still in its early stages. 

" Into the Seething Ocean," by Rachel Slade, is a holding tale about the sinking of El Faro, a freight transport that plunged to the base of the ocean while cruising close to the Bahamas during Tropical storm Joaquin in. The book accounts for the pivotal choices and erroneous conclusions, that prompted this disaster and investigate the lives that were lost. Despite the inauspicious topic, it's a page-turner and a contextual analysis for what can turn out badly, when state-of-the-art figure data isn't paid attention to.
