Her eyes were a hurricane, her mind was a tornado, and her heart was like an earthquake constantly being shaken up. She was nothing more than a series of natural disasters.

Nature’s Fury: The Science of Natural Disasters is now open! 

From earthquakes and volcanoes to tornadoes and hurricanes, nature’s forces shape our dynamic planet and often endanger people around the world. This exhibition explores the causes of these natural forces, considers the consequences, and assesses the risks they pose.

Interactive stations will help visitors discover the processes behind each of these natural phenomena, with opportunities to manipulate a model earthquake fault, generate a virtual volcano, stand in the still eye of a roaring tornado, and assess the power of Hurricane Sandy via an interactive map of New York City.
