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 »

Pretty Decent TV Disaster Film
20 September 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

When I first saw this film, I was about 8 years old and didn't realize how destructive hurricanes can really be. Despite its tendency to be like other disaster epics that came out around the same time, this was a pretty decent film. One thing I do like about it is that a lot of this film takes its plot from several actual hurricanes, especially hurricane Camille. The party vignette reminded a lot of people about what happened during that event when so many people lost their lives while partying during Camille. Also, it is rather sad because this was one of the last pieces of work that Frank Sutton did as he died shortly after this film was completed. At least he had one good dramatic performance after "Gomer Pyle".
