Nova flies right into the eye of the storm for the adrenaline-inducing Nova: Hurricane! Serving as heroes are meteorologists like Hugh Willoughby, who regularly risk life and limb to gain information on these deadly storms. Hurricane Gilbert becomes the soundstage for a real-life action adventure when scientists gather data. As a result of their tenacious exploration, a hurricane's destructive force is better understood. Nova documents the after effects of nature's fury with testimonials of the victims from 1969's Camille. The viewer is left with a hushed respect for the tremendous walls of water that make up a hurricane.
