Fans help determine which episodes of It Could Happen Tomorrow will air
(Nov. 9, 2010) - The Weather Channel® (TWC) polls fans on the "Worst Weather What Ifs." This year has marked a flurry of severe weather throughout the U.S. - tornadoes, hurricanes, floods - but is the worst yet to come?
Fans can cast their votes now thru Nov. 12, at www.weather.com or TWC's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TheWeatherChannel to select which locations they think are the most vulnerable for the next major natural disaster such as an earthquake in Charleston, SC, or a tornado touching down in Chicago, IL. The locations and corresponding events in the poll have all been featured in specific episodes of It Could Happen Tomorrow.
After voting ends, TWC will count down the Top 10 "Worst Weather What Ifs" and air It Could Happen Tomorrow episodes with the most votes Nov. 15 - 19 at 8 p.m. ET. Each episode of It Could Happen Tomorrow examines unbelievable, yet plausible, acts of nature, which could spell disaster for cities across America. Part drama, part science and part history, the series searches the past for clues to theoretical weather events.
TWC's next fan poll will take place the week of Nov 29, where they can help determine which episodes of When Weather Changed History will air on the network. When Weather Changed History explores influential and exciting moments in history when the forces of weather intertwine with the forces of human nature to change the course of history. These weather-influenced experiences come from the fields of politics, exploration, the military, sports, entertainment and much more. The focus of the series is the epic struggle of man against the power of nature - and the dangers of underestimating that power.
