They lurk in the center of thunderstorms, giants capable of re-arranging the landscape in a few brief, fearsome moments. With winds approaching 300 miles per hour, they are the most powerful storms on the face of the earth. TORNADOES II takes a long look at the history of twisters in America, from Ben Franklin's pioneering weather experiments to the devastating storms that wreaked havoc on Arkadelphia, Arkansas in 1997. See how the outbreak of tornadoes in 1953 spurred the establishment of the National Severe Storms Laboratory, then go inside that research center to see what we have learned since then. Relive the deadly storms of 1936 through contemporary news coverage and the accounts of survivors, and thrill to incredible footage of tornadoes' savage power and beauty. It's a revealing look at one of nature's most deadly forces, and how it has affected America.
