Editorial Reviews

Deadliest Tornado looks at the scientists striving to understand the forces at work behind last year's tornado outbreak. Could their work improve tornado prediction in the future? NOVA also talks to people whose lives have been upended by these extreme weather events in an effort to learn how we all can protect ourselves and our communities for the future.

I watched the original television program and was amazed at the resilience of the people who suffered the losses of 2011. This program by Nova is highly educational, showing the work of weather forecasters and their need for storm chasers, informs of the necessity of better early warning systems and reveals the deadly storms in action with devastating results. I really enjoyed the show and highly recommend it to educators and general public. Perhaps if we know more about this deadly force of nature, we can prevent the loss of human life in the future.

My Son (8) is obsessed with tornadoes. It's not a passing one and he knows most of the scientific information behind them and weather patterns. I bought this for him and he loves it. The descriptive terms used in it could have been worded better. MY 8 year old had to ask me what "The clouds were pregnant with tornadoes" meant so I explained. There are graphic survival stories and death mentioned in this video so make sure you're child won't be scarred by it before you purchase.

This video focuses on the 2011 tornado season in the U.S., considered extreme - killing over 550 people. The material covers efforts to improve warning systems, as well as construction. (The latter seems improbable, given the fact the DVD also reported that the Joplin hospital was moved 4" off its foundation by the tornado that hit in 2011.)

However, I still don't understand how tornadoes are formed, nor whether their incidence is increasing or not. Would like to have seen more video shot from within tornadoes - the DVD had a few such clips but didn't explain their origin or other wise comment on them.

Probably the most informative of all of the 2011 tornado documentaries that I've purchased, including Storm Chasers and National Geographic.
