Storyline

Brilliant Oklahoma storm chaser Peter Jensen looses his wife Mary in an unpredictable tornado. Emotionally wrecked, he moves to Portland, in the safe north. Ten years later, he visits his mother in law Margaret Harrington to attend his daughter Kara's graduation. She accepted a job with her lover, Dr. John Tedesco, in Dr. Raymond Ardmore's new epidemiological institute, EDAC. John worries it be unsafely built by a dodgy contractor. Peter's former assistant Robert Booker shows him new research, which indicates monster storms ahead. TV reporters Jerry and Julia taken an interest in both. But the risks collide.

Trivia

Unused footage from Twister (1996) was used in the opening credits after the first tornado sequence. See more »

Goofs

A smart meteorologist would have not taken cover under an overpass, the reason being is that when a tornado gets close to the overpass the winds passing through it would greatly increase due to the wind-tunnel effect. In reality the tornado should have sucked out the people seeking shelter under the overpass and the van for obvious reasons. See more »

Made for TV better than some, worse than others
21 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a made for TV movie, in the genre that has been overdone to some extent. It does have some interesting moments, like the ride in the Hurricane Hunter. It is not a bad movie and certainly better than some of the late night, or early morning fair.I have certainly seen much worse. The actors made the best of the script given and yes, some of the footage would be better using older stock footage, buts lets all remember that this is a lower budget made for TV movie and is certainly not a waste of time. It is not a movie I would buy a copy of, but certainly better than a lot of what is out there.It has some interesting twist, no pun intended where it certainly diverges from Twister and Night of the Twisters.
