Trivia

The dates given for the hurricane (according to the teletype notices) are Monday and Tuesday, August 17th and 18th. Those exact dates match with an actual Hurricane Hilda, which struck in 1964; and also coincide with the landfall of category 5 Hurricane Camille in 1969, on a Sunday-Monday. See more »

User Reviews

 
"A hurricane is a natural phenomenon." ... "Is that what they're teaching in college these days?"
15 November 2011 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Tacky TV-made disaster flick is loaded with familiar faces as well as laughable stock footage of varying quality (some of which is repeated at least once). A depression in the Southern Gulf of Mexico intensifies into a tropical storm before becoming a full-fledged hurricane with 175 mph winds; the National Guard attempts to evacuate residents of the Central Gulf states while Naval forces and Air Force flyboys work together to patrol the seas. The cajoling dialogue has a little snap, but the characters are mostly stock figures. Frank Sutton, as a drunken psychotic whose apartment lies directly in Hurricane Hilda's path, hardly elicits sympathy, but Will Geer and Michael Learned (reunited from TV's "The Waltons") have a nice rapport as sniping weather experts. Special effects are strictly fifth-rate, but star-watchers might be drawn in by the cast.
