    In October the cyclic winds begin. A high-pressure system parks over the region, causing cold, dense air to spin clockwise, moving toward the southwest and eventually slamming into the mountain ranges of California. There is only a matter of time before a wildfire begins. On Tuesday, October 21, 2003, an arsonist starts a brush fire. In less than four hours, this fire consumes over 600 acres of land. As the wildfires get out of control, firefighters are overwhelmed.

    The vibrant city of Chicago is known as the "windy city", and for good reason: the strong breezes that come off Lake Michigan are part of daily life. The city also has a long history of tornados. In 1967 one with 200 mph winds cut 16 miles through the neighboring community of Oak Lawn and all the way into Lake Michigan. If a tornado smashed into Chicago today, and if the rarest and most destructive type of tornado known as an "F-5" hit the city, the destruction would be horrific.
