Overview

It is late summer in the Caribbean. Usually the sea is quite calm here, but not today. Monster waves are crashing on to the shore. There must be powerful winds out at sea. Gradually the sky fills with threatening clouds. The wind starts to blow and heavy rain begins to fall. A hurricane is on the way!
