THE EARTH'S FURIES: Raging mega fires that burn for months. Super eruptions with the potential of a Hiroshima bomb exploding every two or three minutes. Asteroid strikes so violent they wiped out entire species. Devastating tsunamis, tornadoes and earthquakes….
This six-part series, commissioned for RMC Découvertes, explores the science behind natural disasters in search of a deeper understanding. Through animated graphics, interviews with scientists and eyewitnesses, and stunning images, it brings these spectacularly destructive forces of nature to life.
TORNADOES: The USA is affected by 1,200 tornadoes every year and this phenomenon is growing all over the world. With wind speeds inside their vortex reaching up to 500 km per hour and traveling at the speed of a high-speed train, tornadoes are capable of destroying everything in their path. But how do they start? How can we predict them and minimise their destruction? Is global warming responsible for their increasing frequency?
