Summary
Hurricane Sandy is one of the most treacherous weather events to hit the United States. Using footage captured by survivors own cameras and smartphones, we go on the ground to reveal stories of those who experienced the event first-hand and uncover how distinct phenomena combined to create the perfect storm and how we can prepare for the next one. Earthquakes, hurricanes, and volcanoes are some of the most powerful phenomena known to man. Find out how nature has expertly conceived and built killer storms, lava-spewing giants, and destructive quakes - and how we can learn from the designs to help save lives when we find ourselves in the path of one of these Earth-changing events. Witness shocking footage of record-breaking tornadoes as we reveal the science and extraordinary story behind each raging column of disaster. Storm chasers are on a unique and dangerous mission - to gather scientific data from inside the heart of mother nature's deadliest concoction and analyse their findings. On May 4, 2007, a deadly tornado struck Greensburg, Kansas, ripping the town to shreds. Eleven lives were tragically lost, and a community embodying the spirit of small-town America was left to pick up the pieces. From the rubble, however, came a resilient and courageous call from the people of Greensburg to rebuild their community while sending a bold message: to rebuild Greensburg as a model green community. In this extraordinary series co-produced by acclaimed actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio and award-winning producer Craig Piligian, see how the lives and livelihood of Greensburg's citizens are changed by this massive reconstruction effort
