On August 23, 1992, a black-ops research program led by General Roberts perfected a device to control the weather. It was launched from a specially outfitted plane and tested for the first time. But control of the machine was lost, and within hours a deadly hurricane had formed. It became the greatest natural disaster since the San Francisco Earthquake - Hurricane Andrew. In the wake of this catastrophe, all evidence of the program was buried. Seven years later, General Roberts has revived the top-secret project. He recruits ambitious meteorologist Ron Young, who has developed software that directs weather systems. The STORM device, now equipped with this software, has been launched into a weather front 300 miles off the California coast.

General Roberts, an Air Force Brigadier General, is wearing the blue striped fours of service longevity of service ribbon without any oak leaf clusters.

Luke Perry, (Ron Young) is required to give his experience to a renegade Air Foerce General Roberts, ( Martin Sheen) who is involved in a top secret government operation in order to control all the weather of this entire country. The secret weapon is able to be launched from an aircraft into the eye of a massive weather front off California which has great winds of over 400 mph. This storm is headed for Los Angeles and there are many struggles that happen aboard this aircraft and many people fight against each other. There is even time for men and women to find love and close relationships. Great film from 1999, enjoy.
