Drowning New Orleans
On August 28, 2005, an early Sunday morning, America woke up to a shocking surprise.

Tsunami: Killer Wave
The globe learned on December 26, 2004, that tsunamis can bring death and devastation to the world's coastlines. The product of undersea earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, tsunamis can race across oceans at more than 500 miles an hour, leaving a huge wake of destruction when they hit shore. Because it is difficult for scientists to predict how large these massive waves can be, tsunamis are one of the least understood of nature's forces, and one of the most dangerous.

Avalanche: The White Death and Violent Earth
Avalanche! This fierce force of nature can snap trees as if they were twigs, reduce houses to rubble, and kill anyone unlucky enough to stand in the way. Hear terrifying stories of being buried alive. Watch as a wall of white roars forward then stops short just feet from the cameraman. Learn the danger signs of an avalanche, and find out what to do if you're caught in one. Fly with the experts who drop explosives on snow-laden mountains to study made-to-order avalanches.

Join tsunami scientist Jose Borrero of the University of Southern California on his trip to visit Banda Aceh with a National Geographic film team, barely one week after the December 26, 2004, tsunami—a tsunami so strong it actually moved the island of Sumatra a hundred feet.
