DESCRIPTION: (from The Weather Channel's press release, September 2014) The Weather Channel has also greenlit a second season of its popular series "Tornado Alley," which first premiered in April 2014. Each year, more than 2,000 tornadoes occur worldwide, with an average of more than 1,000 tornadoes hitting the United States. Ripping homes from their foundation in a split second or obliterating towns in the blink of an eye, these twisters are as unpredictable as they are dangerous. Over the course of this series, "Tornado Alley" will explore deadly tornadoes from every angle, through the eyes of both experts and survivors. Using cutting-edge CGI, the show destroys cities, tells white-knuckle survival stories, and features user-generated content to show just how devastating tornadoes can be.
