Details

Harvey…Irma…Maria…three commonplace names that became notorious in 2017; names that have become synonymous with unprecedented devastation.

Each of these hurricanes, also known as Atlantic cyclones, experienced rapid intensification as they approached the Caribbean or the US mainland. They are all record holders: Harvey boasts the heaviest precipitation ever measured in the state of Texas; Irma was the strongest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded. With Maria at maximum intensity before even reaching the French Antilles, it looks as though 2017 will be a record-breaking year for Category 5 hurricanes. Thanks to ultra high-definition footage filmed at the heart of all three hurricanes, accompanied by expert analysis and high quality graphics, this film is both an in-depth look at these cataclysmic weather systems as well as a comprehensive examination of the facts surrounding these events.
