History Classics: Mega Disasters
After the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, many of us are wondering what would happen if a major weather catastrophe struck the United States. This amazing collection History Classics: Mega Disasters in DVD format examines tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes and even an asteroid impact, to see what disasters could be coming our way.
For instance, what are experts doing to avoid a landslide of death and destruction in the event of an eruption at Mt. Rainier? Would the people and skyscrapers of present-day Chicago survive a high-speed tornado like the one that hit in 1967? Computer animations, models, and re-creations provide a "jaw-dropping view" of what a Cat 3 hurricane would do to New York city. Just released today, Mega Disasters includes 10 documentaries on 5 DVDs:
DISC 1: Asteroid Apocalypse / Atlantis Apocalypse
DISC 2: American Volcano / The Next Pompeii
DISC 3: Windy City Tornado / New York City Hurricane
DISC 4: LA's Killer Quake / Yellowstone Eruption
