The Hurricane Hunters by Ivan Ray Tannehill (1890 - 1959).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-hurricane-hunters-by-ivan-ray-tannehill/
This 1955 book by an acknowledged authority is an absorbing account of meteorology before the advent of weather satellites. “This is the lively account of the hair-raising experiences of the men who have probed by sea and air into the inner mysteries of the world’s most terrible storms…. Here is the first intimate revelation of what the human eye and the most modern radars see in the violent regions of the tropical vortex. The descriptions of the activities of these valiant scouts of the storms are taken from personal interviews with military flyers and weathermen who have risked their lives in the furious blasts in all parts of the hurricane. The author has made a special study of hurricanes for over forty years. He has served with the Weather Bureau as chief of the marine division, chief of all forecasting and reporting and assistant chief of the Bureau, in charge of its technical operations.” ( Advertisement in the book and David Wales)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

I've lived through several earthquakes in Los Angeles in 50 years here but far more terrifying was the one time I was in a hurricane in South Carolina when I was a teenager. I remember the wind growing stronger and stronger and it seemed as if the house would collapse; there was simply no escape. I hope never to go through anything like that again.

Pretty interesting book so far. The closest I came is a tropical storm in FL. I was mostly worried about flying debris.
