S1: Hurricanes | Fierce Earth

The team encounters the most feared event in weather - the hurricane. Florida-based stormchaser Mike takes us on a wild ride into the eye of the storm and we meet three childhood friends who had their lives turned upside down when Hurricane Ike struck their homes in Texas. Leo is challenged to take hurricane-force winds head on and Zoe learns how we are designing buildings to cope with their awesome force.
