Product Description

The late weather forecast predicted deadly tornadoes, thunderstorms, and a record-breaking blizzard that would hit the eastern United States in one violent storm. But for some already asleep for the night, these urgent emergency warnings would go unheard. Now, witness one of this century's most catastrophic storms on its 1,200-mile journey of destruction from Florida's Gulf Coast to Canada - knocking out power in more than three million homes and taking some 270 lives. Follow one family's terrifying ordeal as a 12-foot-high storm surge ravages their weekend reunion. And be there for the dramatic rescue of students trapped by the blinding snow on a wilderness expedition in the Great Smoky Mountains. Experience these deadly forces of nature firsthand in STORM OF THE CENTURY.

The incredible storm of 1993 that ravaged the Eastern Seaboard, bigger than any since the 1800s, rightly acquired the title Storm of the Century. National Geographic looks at the events before, during, and after, including the late warnings that largely went unheard and the dramatic stories of the survivors, many of whom braved terrible floods or deep snow before help could arrive. Most were expecting only more unseasonable warmth--the hurricane winds, massive thunderstorms, and fierce blizzards knocked out power and caught nearly everyone off guard. In addition to interviews with meteorologists who had to puzzle together the bizarre reports from their computers, you'll see footage from Florida to Maine documenting nature's savagery, and follow a group of students hiking in North Carolina's Blue Ridge mountains who were rescued from four feet of snow, as well as others who weren't so lucky. You will never again be complacent about the weather report after watching Storm of the Century. --Rob Lightner

This video is amazing to watch, how the whole storm came together - I had the experience of being on a Holland America cruise that was trying to enter the Tampa port - but a half hour away, they closed the port because it would have been too dangerous to come under the bridge - they sent us out to sea where our ship was tossed around like a toy boat for two days - every piece of glass or china was smashed. It was amazingly dramatic to be caught in as the bow & stern of the ship would alternate being swamped by waves and then the ship would role side to side. This video brought it all back and more!

I purchased this because my boyfriend is the brother that was not their that night when his mother, lil brother, and brother inlaw and neice and nephew died in the Storm., It is heart wrenching but has helped me understand what happened to the family.

It is a view backwards. Interesting to see "Wheater Channel" again. It was part of an essay that I wrote.

I was in Birmingham, Alabama, and spring was blooming everywhere one day and the next, we had 16" of snow in my parking lot and no power. This was my first blizzard and would prefer it be my last. The blizzard did more tree damage than Hurricane Opal, which came straight through Alabama. Really a remarkable storm.
