Synopsis by Gayla Mills

In 1993, The Eastern Seaboard from Florida to Canada was struck by the worst of nature's furies-a deadly storm made of tornadoes, thunderstorms, and blizzards mixing together to leave 270 dead and 1,200 miles ravaged. National Geographic alternates scientific reports with dramatic stories of survival. From blinding mountain snow storms to coastal waves of 12 feet, nature hurled its full force in this storm of the century. More than three million homes lost power, and dramatic rescue of stricken victims was the order of the day. From the safety of your living room you can view these events firsthand-and never again be complacent about weather report warnings.
