A Lot of Wind
16 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A mild mannered meteorologist works in a little weather station, filled with the newest equipment. After his son has headed off for scout camp, a report comes in from that military that a hurricane with sustained winds of nearly 200 miles per hour is heading toward the coast. There are two stories here. Of course, we get to see that efforts to inform the public, given the fairly inadequate communications systems of the 1950's. Then there's the boy and his pals, right in the path of the thing. The meteorologist, assisted by his higher-ups goes on TV right from the facility and warns the public. We get to see stock footage of hurricanes, probably hitting the coast of Florida. The question to answer is why this hugest of hurricanes suddenly appeared, literally out of nowhere.
