Hurricanes: New Tools for Predicting

Hurricane Katrina, which struck New Orleans and other Gulf Coast communities on August 29, 2005, provided the worst kind of reminder of the importance of accurate hurricane prediction — and of heeding those predictions. This video segment adapted from NOVA scienceNOW a year before Katrina struck, describes the current state of research into what causes hurricanes and how scientists are now able to "see" inside the storms in their ongoing efforts to more accurately predict both the path and intensity of these powerful storms.
