Summary
In the U.S. alone, tornadoes kill up to 70 people a year and injure as many as 1,500 while causing an estimated 400 million dollars in damage. More than ever before, scientists are determined to unlock the mystery of how tornadoes work, especially close to the ground where they wreak the most havoc. But no one has ever been able to get a view from inside the whirling base of a deadly funnel-until now. This program takes viewers into the vortex of a tornado as researchers attempt to decipher its patterns and internal forces
