Summary
Weather is uncontrollable. Over time we have learned to live with storms, heat waves, droughts, and prolonged periods of extreme cold. As this documentary explains, they are all examples of extreme or unusual weather-nature at its deadliest and most destructive. In March 1993, the US Eastern Seaboard was hit with a massive snow storm that became known as the Storm of the Century. Two years later, Chicago was caught up in a five-day nightmare of heat and humidity. In 1998, prolonged floods contaminated water and ruined crops in Bangladesh, and months of drought can result in devastating famines and thousands of deaths in countries like Ethiopia or the Sudan. Extreme weather can take many forms, and has the power to wreak havoc on a huge scale
