This program opens in Florida, where, in 1993, an extratropical cyclone began a reign of terror that destroyed lives all along the East Coast. More people died in this storm than in Hurricanes Andrew and Hugo combined. Most people think of hurricanes as the biggest storms on Earth. Meteorologists give them names and track their destructive paths on the news. An extratropical cyclone - a storm born outside of the tropics - on occasion can grow even bigger than a hurricane.
