What Stands in a Storm: Three Days in the Worst Superstorm to Hit the South's Tornado Alley documents the events that took place in April of 2011, when a superstorm crossed over twenty states from Texas to New York during a three-day period and flattened communities in its wake. It comes from a journalist who gathered the firsthand stories of people who lived through the storm, documenting acts of heroism, survival, and deadly storms that, for some, became their last hours. Dramatic stories provide a "you are there" feel to events while accounts of heroism and courage lend to a powerful saga that is true history at its best: gripping, detailed, and hard to put down.
