NOVA | Inside the Megastorm

Posted by WMHT Web Editor

Watch Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 9pm on WMHT TV.

Inside the Megastorm, an original one-hour documentary that takes viewers moment by moment through Hurricane Sandy.

Was Hurricane Sandy a freak combination of weather systems? Or are hurricanes increasing in intensity due to a warming climate? How did this perfect storm make search and rescue so dangerous? “Inside the Megastorm” takes viewers moment-by-moment through Hurricane Sandy, its impact and the future of storm protection. Through first-person accounts from survivors and from experts and scientists, the program gives scientific context to a new breed of storm.

Are super-storms becoming more frequent, more destructive, more deadly? Can we engineer our way to safety if Sandy is a sign of things to come? Using candid first person accounts of storm survivors from the hardest hit areas, and eye-opening interviews with experts and scientists, NOVA’s Special Presentation of Inside the Megastorm gives scientific context to a new breed of storms.

“As we’ve seen by these recent tragic events, there are forces of nature beyond our control that continue to shape our world in monumental ways,” said NOVA’s Senior Executive Producer Paula S. Apsell. “NOVA seeks to investigate the science in order to understand and prepare for this new breed of storm.”
“PBS presents two documentaries that showcase how fragile and interconnected our relationship is to the environment and how powerful weather events continue to impact our lives from past through the present,” said Beth Hoppe, PBS Vice President, Programming. “It’s an informative and revealing night of television that viewers will not want to miss.”

Can scientists unravel the mysterious phenomena that lurk between Earth and space?
