Dramatic footage and survivor interviews capture the power and fury of these deadly storms.
They are the trouble in paradise, massive storms that wreak havoc with winds of up to 155 miles per hour, driving waters before them that can submerge coastal towns and wash away cars, buildings and lives. In the Pacific they are called typhoons. In the Caribbean and Atlantic they are called hurricanes.
Through awesome footage, extensive photos and captivating interviews with survivors, HURRICANES: CATEGORY FIVE traces the path of destruction left by three of the most powerful storms to ever hit the American continent: the ?Big One? in Miami in 1926, the New England Hurricane of 1938 and Hurricane Andrew, which demolished Homestead, Florida and left much of the Miami area in rubbles in 1992. Discover why these storms were so destructive (the Hurricane of ?38 was the most costly natural disaster in America?s history to that point), and why other, equally powerful hurricanes left little damage behind. And see how we have gotten better at predicting when and where hurricanes will hit.
It?s a thrilling journey into the heart of the savage storms that have left their mark on America.
