Moments of fear and courage in the face of nature’s wrath – these are the stories of “Hurricane 360,” an all-new eight-part series that takes viewers on an immersive minute-by-minute journey into the eye of the storm. Each episode places you directly in the path of one the biggest hurricanes of the 21st century – from the flooded streets of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, to the ravaged coast of New Jersey in the middle of Superstorm Sandy. As we follow the storm and its aftermath, survivors and rescuers tell their terrifying stories in their own words. Featuring never-before-seen footage shot by the survivors themselves, “Hurricane 360” pieces together blow-by-blow accounts of sacrifice and survival, linking them across a CGI landscape to show what’s happening where during each moment of the disaster. “Hurricane 360” is produced by Flight 33 Productions.
