Sam leaps into the body of Mississippi Sheriff Archie Necaise who along with his girlfriend, Red Cross nurse Cissy Davis, are trying to get people to evacuate the area due to the impending arrival of a major hurricane. They have to deal with quite a number of people who simply won't leave and some are actually having a party as they plan to ride out the storm. He also has to deal with his old girlfriend, Lisa, who obviously still has feelings for him and is heartbroken over their break up. However, Al tells Sam that he's there to save his girlfriend Cissy's life. Sometime later that day at the height of the storm, she will return to her home for reasons unknown and be struck by a piece of flying debris. Sam's plan is simple: keep her close by and not let her return home. It doesn't quite work out that when they get a call to evacuate someone in distress. Sam manages to partly change the future, but when Al learns that Cissy will now be shot, Sam races to rescue her. Written by garykmcd
