This is a new high definition (HD) dramatic video choreographed to powerful music that introduces the viewer/student to the power of Tornadoes. It is designed as a motivational "trailer" to be shown by teachers in Physical Science, Earth Science and Meteorology classrooms in middle school, high school and college as a visual Introduction to the nature of these powerful storms and their destructive force.

The Cape Verde region is a set of islands just off western Africa. Hurricanes that form in this region are referred to as Cape Verde storms. These hurricanes have a long trajectory over warm oceans — which are ideal conditions for hurricane intensification. Many Cape Verde storms move through the Caribbean and then enter the Gulf of Mexico or affect the East Coast. Others curve north into the open Atlantic. Cape Verde storms are often extremely intense hurricanes, because they have a long time to develop before they reach the US mainland.
The Living Desert Tour, originally developed by Tommy himself in the 1990’s, is a unique 4x4 adventure drive through the dunes outside Swakopmund, Namibia. Just the drive in the dunes is an amazing experience, but Tommy will show you a lot more than sand. The tour takes you from the vegetated, life-rich eastern side of the dunes, right through the dunes to the Atlantic Ocean on the western side of the dune belt.
Tommy introduces you to some of the fascinating, hidden life in this apparently barren landscape that is part of the Namib Desert.
