NOVA | Megastorm Aftermath

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on
Megastorm Aftermath Preview How can cities prepare for rising seas and raging storms?

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

In October 2012, superstorm Sandy cut a path of devastation across the Caribbean and the East Coast, killing hundreds and doing tens of billions of dollars in damage. Now, a year after Sandy’s deadly strike, correspondent Miles O’Brien and NOVA follow up on the 2012 film “Inside the Megastorm” with a fresh investigation of the critical questions raised by this historic storm: Was Hurricane Sandy a freak combination of weather systems? Or are hurricanes increasing in intensity due to a changing climate? What can we do to prepare ourselves for the next Sandy, and what progress has been made toward making our urban infrastructure more resilient?

Phylogenetic trees can tell us where medical problems come from, and how to fight them.
