Category 6... BEST CBS SPECIAL EVA'!!!!!!!!! category 6: DAY OF DESTRUCTION.
Is the 2nd best special on ever, it was on in 2004... This the review:
The beginning has Los Vegas as the opening sequence about 15 miuted long. A stormy night is covering the sky and busy gamblers are going to get a nasty surprise...two twister touch down and consume Los Vegas and the money is rained aponded a house near by. *MEANWHILE*
Giant super cell created in the Gulf of Mexico and is heading northward, a Hurricane in Canada is heading Southward, weather patterns show that they WILL collide. As the main characters are in Chicago discussing about power outages around the country, 'Tornado Tommy' is giving a tour to Japanese visitors and is confronted with his job and leaves the visitors at a gas station and tells them to find a hotel. The super cell is producing F-5 tornadoes in the state with the building shaped like half a hoop. The building is desinagrated by a monsterous F-6 tornado. After much panic, the storms collide and it seems like doomsday in Chicago. The main character's daugter is shot by her boyfriend who robbed the bank they were in, he died ith mall from being c crushed after he became good. Tornado Tommy was snuck up on by a tornado as he was filming two others. The storm finally dies down and the characters are thinking of moving to California.
-I forgot to mention that the power was dying from a hacher who is one of the characters friends, he did it so the heat would'nt make it stronger, he got electrucuted by wiry poles from a power plant.
Ps. Think its over? Think Tommy died?
category 7: END OF THE WORLD.
It's Nature taking on the WHOLE world. And CBS' best special.
Excellent Movie of Nature's Wrath I really enjoyed this movie. I though the acting was great, and the story very touching, exciting, scary, and sad at the same time. The acting is great in my opinion. The story is set mostly in Chicago, and surrounds terrible storms, tornados, hurricanes, and severe thunder storms. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of these types of movies. The only negative thing I can say is they did not do a very good job of piecing together the movie - it was originally a made for TV movie, and that is apparent as the cut-offs to commercials are still there. Regardless, this is a great movie and about a topic that should be on all of our minds.Realistic Film Depicting the Future and Problem w/ Politics As a science teacher, a weather enthusiast, and a beginning stormchaser, I am proud to comment on the reality of the implications that were foreshadowed in this made for t.v mini-series.
I know there are pure weather scientists that will turn down this movie because the idea of 2 major weather systems combining to create a Category 6 storm over the city of Chicago is unrealistic.
However, the main point of this movie is that it's goal is to educate people about the potential for the type of problems that can occur if and when, if not already, our weather system starts to change.
The movie did a great job in depicting the role of such weather events on the government, power corporations, individual families, stormchasers, the media, and the meteorology dept.
What makes this movie different, and from my point of view more enjoyable than A Day After Tomorrow, is that it incorporates everyday life and is based on global warming. It doesn't mention that there is an Ice Age that is just beginning as does a Day After Tomorrow.
This year alone we have seen that there are many more supercells that have formed across the plains and midwest with winds in excess of 74mph, which is hurricane force winds. While some of these storms may not have touched down as a tornado, the main emphasis is that weather is currently becoming more violent than it once has. As a society we really have to start thinking about our actions and what the implications are on our environment.
Is 2006 going to be any different than 2004 or 2005 in terms of hurricane intensity and strength? I have personally survived Hurricane Katrina this year being in Waveland, Mississippi and I can tell you this is a serious issue that is going to affect our country for the next several decades.
Hurricane Rita had at one point pressure under 900mb with sustained winds of 175-185 mph with gusts over 225mph. This is the equivalent to an F3 Tornado the size of Georgia with a tropical storm wrapped around it. Are we going to keep being naive and believing that these storms are not going to start coming inland? What will happen when sea surface temperatures will rise even more and the storms don't weaken before they hit land? Will there be 60 ft storm surges?
Everyone should start paying attention to such phenomenon and hope that our government starts to take a serious look at how and where our populations are developing within the U.S
