In this "natural phenomenon" documentary-DVD, from Nova, the viewer meets up with a group of inquisitive and very determined meteorologists who are out to understand the true nature of tornadoes.

Through Doppler radar, in combination with computer simulation, these diligent meteorologists follow the paths of tornadoes with actual wind-power that reaches up to 300 mph.

As an added bonus for all you "thrill seekers" - This documentary features some very good visuals of the incredible destructive power unleashed by various tornadoes in Oklahoma and its surrounding states.
