Today on Far Future Horizons we present an episode from the acclaimed documentary series Perfect Disaster which examines the scenario of
being devastated by a
Super-tornado, one exceeding an F5 on the Fujita scale. Dallas,
At 1.5 miles wide with speeds of over 350 miles an hour, a mega-tornado would reduce downtown
to a war
zone within minutes. Scientists know it could happen, and today is the day it
does. James Abott from the Dallas
Emergency Management office knows this is the worst imaginable storm, and he
faces a choice. Does he stay in the control room and help combat the biggest
Tornado the world has ever seen or does he try to save his wife and child, lost
on a highway in the path of the monster? Dallas
Perfect Disaster was a one-hour American documentary television mini-series that premiered in 2006 on the Discovery Channel. The program depicted the worst-case scenario that major cities could expect in the near future if hit by extreme disaster. A large part of each episode was based around the lives of citizens from each city, with the remainder of the program showing us real-world scientists discussing the very high probabilities of these disasters. The trademark tagline of the show was "When the conditions are right, it will all go wrong."
Perfect Disaster is available on DVD from Amazon Books.
