From the Hurricane of '38 to the "Perfect Storm," this is a gripping look at the deadly storms of the Atlantic.
In the summer and early fall, hurricanes are the culprit. Later in the year, it is northeasters. Whatever they are called, the awesome storms that form over the Atlantic Ocean have caused some of the most devastating natural disasters in American history.
Filled with incredible footage of the winds, waves, water and destruction they leave behind, HURRICANE WARNING goes into the eye of these deadly storms. We'll see how hurricanes and northeasters are formed and examine the advances in weather prediction and tracking technology that have helped limit the damage they cause in recent years. But, as the "Perfect Storm" proved, no amount of preparation and warning can eliminate all danger, and these powerful systems still leave men, machines and communities at their mercy. From the gale of 1898 and the epic hurricane of '38 to Andrew and other modern disasters, this is a compelling, comprehensive look at the deadly storms of the Atlantic.
HURRICANE WARNING includes segments from three WRATH OF GOD programs: NOR'EASTER: KILLER STORMS, HURRICANES: CATEGORY FIVE and HURRICANES: DEADLY WIND, DEADLY RAIN.
