Earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods - these colossal powers of nature have had dramatic consequences for human kind. Now in dramatic scenes of cataclysmic destruction and human courage, you'll journey with National Geographic as we learn how earthquakes create and shape our landscapes, even as they destroy cities like San Francisco and Tokyo. Discover how rotating updrafts can build into the towering tornadoes that sweep the Midwest's "Tornado Alley," or how cloud disturbances can grow into the awesome hurricanes that ravage coastal areas of Bangladesh and Florida. Witness the devastation of flooding in France and China, and learn, as today's scientists have, that the mighty Mississippi cannot be easily tamed. But as massive as these forces are, the stories of heroism and tragedy are very personal. You'll meet heroes, fighting to save homes and lives, but see victims too, suffering unspeakable tragedies. Join scientists as they study the elemental killers. Their work is critical, not only to prepare and protect us, but also, hopefully, to better predict: Nature's Fury!
