Synopsis by Cecilia Cygnar
In this episode of the History Channel series Wrath of God, which explores different natural disasters through the ages, there is a look at some of the most destructive and deadly hurricanes ever. First, there is a look at the hurricane that rocked Miami in 1926, followed by the storm that damaged much of the New England area in 1938. Later in the 20th century, Hurricane Andrew destroyed the town of Homestead, FL, and much of Miami when it came ashore in 1992. Many other hurricanes that have hit the United States in the past have been even more forceful and potentially destructive, but have caused little damage. Experts talk about why some hurricanes do more damage than others. There is also a study of the latest advances in predicting hurricanes and how technology has helped target the area and time a hurricane will hit land.
