S1: Tornadoes | Fierce Earth

Tornadoes are rare, but there's nothing more frantic or explosive in nature. The team investigates where that awesome power comes from and what happens when it's unleashed, meeting a nine-year-old boy in Alabama who was picked up and thrown by a tornado, plus a UK man who survived the worst one ever to hit this country. Leo puts tornado proof materials to the test in a high velocity lab experiment.
