Ice Storm! The 1998 Freeze details one of the worst ice storms in U.S. history. Through stories of storm survivors, readers will see how ice immobilized parts of New England and eastern Canada, snapping powers lines, felling trees, and stranding people in their homes. Combining scientific explanation of ice storms with narrative documentation, Ice Storm! outlines advances in disaster prevention and safety procedures since 1998. Full-Color photographs, a map, and a diagram will further inform students. Ice Storm! is part of Bearport's X-treme Disasters that Changed America series.
