Text: Amanda Maxwell. “Tsunamis, Hurricanes, Eruptions: Predicting a Natural Disaster.” NOW.
Extract from the article: “Meteorology for natural events isn’t an exact science. Despite advances in technology, no one can tell with complete accuracy when a volcano will erupt, or how powerful a hurricane will be on landfall.
However, observation and data are powerful tools, so prediction is getting better and faster.”
Although this article does concede the ambiguity in meteorology and prediction there are clear reasons why people are seeking more “indisputable evidence” in this area.
