Summary
Have you ever wondered how hurricanes become powerful enough to lift cars and level cities? In How Could We Harness a Hurricane, Vicki Cobb describes this natural phenomenon and the three things it's made of: air, water, and energy. Read about traveling to the eye of the storm, modifying weather, and other interesting work that meteorologists, scientists, and engineers do to solve the big problems posed by hurricanes
