In 1992 Alabama, Will and Breeze Rutledge are evacuating from the destructive Category 5 Hurricane Andrew with their dad. However, their truck gets stuck after avoiding a toppling tree in front of them and they are forced to take refuge in a nearby house. While trying to save the truck from blowing away, strong winds blow a water tank loose and it crushes their dad, killing him. In present day, another destructive hurricane named Tammy approaches the town in Alabama. Treasury agent Casey Corbyn is ordered by fellow employee Randy Moreno to summon Breeze, who now works as a handyman, and whose brother Will is a meteorologist, to fix the generator at a cash storage facility. While she is out of the facility, rogue Treasury agents, led by Connor Perkins, infiltrate the facility and hold employee Moreno hostage..
In the trailer, viewers are told that the heist is planned during the monstrous hurricane that is pushing 600 miles per hour. The Great Red Spot, a massive hurricane on Jupiter that can fit two Earths in it, is also a 600-mile-per-hour storm. The highest sustained wind speed ever recorded in a hurricane on Earth is 190 miles per hour. See more »
When a large explosion occurs downtown during the height of the hurricane, the resulting smoke doesn't move in any direction but lazily upward, despite the very high winds that just seconds before, caused a man to be blown sideways while holding onto a cell tower. See more »
Breeze, you in one piece?
I'm still breathing. I thought you left.
Nah, I got to missing you too much.
I know, Willie. Listen, brother, save yourself, man. They're gonna kill me anyway.
Just be cool. All right? Everything's gonna be okay. You'll see. I love you.
I love you, too. In fact, everybody loves everybody around here. Now, where are you?
We're at the mall.
There's only mall in Gulfport. Figure it out.

Don't go in expecting much and you'll be surprised...
Ok, so there's more than a few plot holes, ridiculous lines and 'what the hell?' moments, and the sub-plot between the brothers is unnecessary. All that aside, it's actually a pretty enjoyable movie. The acting from the main characters is for the most part solid, the story line was interesting enough to keep me interested for 90 odd minutes, and the effects were top notch. Seems like they really pumped a lot of money into CGI to make up for other shortcomings, and while they exaggerated the power of the storm way too much at times it was still impressive.
If you found movies like 'The Day After Tomorrow' and 'Geostorm' enjoyable you'll more than likely enjoy this too!
