Nova: Weather Gone Wild

Hunt for the Supertwister

In seconds, a supertwister can leave immense swaths of death and destruction. But what if technology could help us tame nature's most violent tornadoes? Join fearless stormchasers as they untwist mysteries that may explain how these killer storms spawn and where they are likely to strike. And venture into America's "Tornado Alley" to witness some of the most shockingly intense tornado footage ever filmed.


NOVA takes you an a high voltage trip into the most electrically charged weather in the world - culminating in a dazzling lightning show set to music that rivals the most extraordinary fireworks display. Join scientists as they tempt nature by creating the world's tallest lightning rod, which triggers awe inspiring thunderbolts a few hundred feet from the observers and creates a chunk of "petrified" lightning - then visit with some of lightning's tragic victims who thought they were out of harm's way.


Witness nature's fury first hand as hurricanes Camille and Gilbert crash into the Gulf coast. Join scientist Hugh Willoughby on a data gathering flight made into the eye of Hurricane Gilbert - a canyon of clear blue sky surrounded by a wall of clouds 10 miles high - then hear first hand accounts from survivors of Hurricane Camille, the most devastating storm ever to strike the United States.
