Perfect Storms will use these same high tech tools, dramatic storytelling, and investigation.A cyclone that stopped the Roman Army cold. A hurricane and "dragon twist" that wiped out major cities. A supervolcano that triggered the Dark Ages. These are history's perfect storms, forces of nature that impacted us in ways far beyond the physical havoc they wreaked.
