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?
NOVA “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.
“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.”
