Episode Detail: Storm of the Century - World of National Geographic
“Storm of the Century” charts the “superstorm” that hit the eastern third of the U.S. in March 1993, dumping snow from Alabama to Maine, and causing deadly winds in Florida. It affected 100 million people all told. The hour tracks the storm from its birth in the Gulf of Mexico (where two jet streams collided), and also profiles people caught in it in Florida and in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Peter Coyote narrates.
