Episode Summary

Shockwave - 31
Tragedy strikes as American troops are leaving Guam to relocate 4 stealth bombers to their home base in Missouri. One sensor on the instrument panel malfunctions and brings this multi billion dollar flying machine crashing down on the tarmac. One of the strongest tornados ever to hit South Dakota literally wipes out the entire town of Manchester. The EF -5 twister whips at more than 300 miles an hour and levels every house in town. Manchester never rebuilds and now there is a simple plaque commemorating the towns one hundred year history and the people who once lived there. A foundry in Tacoma Washington erupts shooting flames and debris 300 feet in the air. The spectacular explosion was triggered as as a tanker truck was unloading 8 thousand gallons of propane. A tink leak in the delivery system triggers the massive eruption. England's worst flood in 400 years nearly washes away the town of Boscastle. The vicious torrent rages down streets and washes through homes leaving residents on their rooftops pleading for help. A race in Ohio ends tragically just before the finish line. The driver of the BMW car flips over 13 times, flying more than the length of a football field before coming to a crashing stop.moreless
