"Smoke'n Bob's" Hot Dog cart, seen in one of the town scenes, is a dead giveaway for the Winnipeg shooting location. Also recognizable: the Garry Theatre. See more »

Goofs

The notion of opening windows when a tornado approaches went out with the Eighties. There is no way a tornado expert like Dr. Arledge would be advising to do such a thing in 2002. See more »

Warnings
2 August 2006 | by (Virginia U$A) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better made-for-TV tornado movies I have seen. Like most of these movies, they save all the tornado action for the last part of the movie. This movie had a pretty decent plot, and some known actors. Sadly, like all if not most tornado movies, the producers did not get their tornado and weather facts right. The part where they give a tornado warning, no one heads for shelter. When a tornado warning is issued it means that a tornado or funnel cloud has been witnessed by a person, or detected on radar and the people in the path of the storm should seek shelter IMMEDIATELY. The movie takes place in Oklahoma, which is in the heart of tornado alley, and the people of the town did not take any sort of action when the warning was issued.

Not a bad movie, I would watch it again.
