With wind speeds of 419 km/h or more, F5 tornadoes are so powerful they can rip roofs off houses and toss cars and trucks around like toys! With this title in the Disaster series, kids can get a close-up look at these violent winds as they follow storm chasers hot on the trail of a tornado, see amazing photos of tornadoes and the damage they leave behind, and read about some of the most destructive tornadoes of the last century!
