In the wake of storms Katrina and Ike, what can be done to predict hurricanes? Can the devastating damage be prevented? The program considers why hurricanes form in the Atlantic Ocean and explains how researchers are using storm simulators to find out how shatterproof glass and building materials stand up against strong winds. A debate within the meteorological community highlights the impact of global warming on extreme weather.
