Can you recommend any great fiction or poetry about natural disasters?

You'd think this would be easy... I'm looking for great YA literature appropriate for 7th graders, on the topic natural disasters. This is what I've come up with so far:
The Wizard of Oz
Out of the Dust (Karen Hesse)
The Cay, Theodore Taylor
Anyone fondly recall a great YA book about natural disaster survival, especially one that is really exciting? We don't want anything that is too young and babyish though. The book/story/poem needs to be fictional--there are of course many memoirs and nonfiction books that I'm already aware of.
Thanks for any ideas. Bonus points for anything that has won awards or is by a famous author.
