What is it like to witness a hurricane? How is its reporting and history formed from different people's perspectives of the event? This book uses first-hand accounts from eyewitnesses, survivors, the emergency services, scientists and the media to describe what happened before, during and after Hurricane Sandy, which hit the Caribbean and parts of the United States in 2012. We also look at the science: the facts, the timeline and the physical causes and effects of the hurricane. Why was Hurricane Sandy unique? And how long will the clean-up take?
