VOLATILE EARTH: KILLER HUR­RI­CANES

Inside Soap - - INSIDE TV -

In the last 12 months, we’ve wit­nessed dev­as­ta­tion in­flicted on Puerto Rico and Bar­buda by hur­ri­canes – but ac­cord­ing to historical doc­u­ments, the dead­li­est At­lantic hur­ri­cane on record was the Great Hur­ri­cane of 1780. The storm killed nearly 28,000 peo­ple in the Caribbean, and in tonight’s con­clud­ing episode of Volatile Earth, sci­en­tists in­ves­ti­gate the fa­tal ef­fects of the storm, and pre­dict the like­li­hood of a sim­i­lar hur­ri­cane hap­pen­ing again.
