Nat Geo Commissions ‘Storm' Series


The National Geographic Channel said Thursday it has commissioned a series that will look at how inclement weather effects the environment.
The four-part series, Storm City, will examine the science behind destructive weather forces using witness accounts of what it feels like to be caught in the midst of nature's fury. Using advanced engineering technology and science, a team of experts set out to recreate what happens during earthquakes, extreme winds, avalanches and floods, the network said.
For the series, the network used 3D cameras in a two-story house to test and demonstrate the catastrophic damage that extreme natural forces can cause.
"Weather is getting scarier by the day and this evocative show puts the viewers inside a huge storm," Michael Cascio, executive vice president for National Geographic Channel U.S. said in a statement.
