Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
A giant, reptilian monster surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake. To stop the monster (and its babies), an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
Something unspeakably chilling is ultimately starting to heat up at The City of Los Angeles! Beneath the famed La Brea Tar Pits, a raging volcano has formed, raining a storm of deadly fire bombs and an endless tide of white-hot lava upon the stunned city! Written by

The number of the bus used by Roark and the police to divert the lava in Wilshire Boulevard is 3736. See more »
Assuming (though unscientific), somehow the concrete of the drain did survive the temperature (even if didn't it won't have mattered though, it was below ground), but what happens when it came in contact with water (ocean)? The lava will solidify, form a dam at the mouth and then spill over, making it a lava lake (as it happens when a river is dammed). See more »
Sometimes magma can find one of those fissures and rise up through it.
Lava? Right here in L.A?
It is one of the possibilities.
We have a history of that here in the downtown area?
Paracutin... 1943, a Mexican farmer sees smoke coming out of the middle of his cornfield. A week later there's a volcano a thousand feet high. There's no history of anything until it happens. Then there is.

Tommy Lee Jones plays Mike Roark, head of the Office Of Emergency Management(OEM) who is contacted by Dr. Amy Barnes(Anne Heche) who is concerned that Earth tremors will lead to an underground eruption of a volcano, as temperatures within are increasing. He scoffs, but she is proved right when fireballs emerge from the volcanic eruption, and Los Angeles is threatened by a moving wall of lava. How can the team stop it, and save the city? Slickly made but implausible film might have been better served moving the location to Hawaii, where it might be believable. Anne Heche shines, but other characters are dumb or superfluous, though this still remains a semi-watchable popcorn film, but little more.
