More Hurricane Resources

A few pages on a website (Hurricanes and Tracking & Recording Hurricanes) may be enough to for a general view ofwhat hurricanes are, and what they're capable of. But it is impossible to do the power and fury of a hurricane justice in such a limited amount of space.

Fortunately there are several other resources which will goa long way towards expanding your knowledge and appreciation of hurricanes - most notably DVDs, Videos and books,together witha small selection of photos, prints and posters.

DVDs And Videos

Before buying any video or DVD, please make sure that it is in a suitable format for your country, and has been released there. All titles referred to here are available in the USA and Canada. Check the availability of any titles you are interested in at outlets in your own part of the world.

There is a good range of DVDs and videos covering many aspects of hurricanes, from general information to specific storms. Hurricanes also form part of the material on more general weather and extreme weather sets.

Material from A&E and the History Channel is the most varied, and this applies to most weather topics. Older material may only be available on video, while later productions are on DVD or both. It is unlikely that you will find this material elsewhere.

Among the titles are

Unless stated otherwise, the above titles are only available on DVD

Also worth considering is the double DVD set called Nature's Fury DVD Set . Only partly devoted to hurricanes but the whole package also includes flash floods, tornadoes, wildfires, nor'easters, blizzards and tsunamis. Some of these topics are hard to find anywhere else.

Discovery Channel Store

A couple of DVDs can be found here. An interesting one is Planet Storm DVD , which investigates the question of how storms observed on other planets would appear if let loose on earth. Scary stuff, which also provides good insights into how weather works.

Amazon

Amazon has quite a few hurricane DVDs and videos, including several I have not seen elsewhere. Things change quickly there and it is always worth a look.

You'll find all of them here - Hurricane DVDs And Videos , although at least two of the Nova productions - Hurricane and Weather Gone Wild are, at least at the moment, cheaper at DVD Empire

DVD Empire

DVD Empire also has a good range of hurricane DVDs and videos. The ones listed here are at the best price I've seen, but things change rapidly in the DVD scene. They carry a good range of National Geographic products.

Books

When it comes to books it's hard to beat Amazon. There's heaps of books and articles on hurricanes, for all ages, but I think I've picked the best of them and included them in my list of Hurricanes Past And Present. Many of them are only recently issued - Hurricane Katrina has resulted in a flood of books as well as water - but 2004 was also a big year for hurricanes and stirred many authors into action on hurricanes of the past. I've also included several books for children.

Prints, Photos and Posters

Weather is a great subject for artists and photographers, and hurricanes have attracted their share. Most of the material from the two outlets below can be obtained in a range of sizes, at varying prices. Keep a look out for specials and discounts as well. Both distributors have much bigger lists on the topic, but the weather themes are scattered amongst artwork on boxers, sporting teams and WW2 aircraft.
