Over several months a potent succession of cold fronts will sweep across the world. Ever increasing in intensity and duration, damaging storms will batter the West Coast and spawn flooding, mudslides and severe, deadly tornadoes across the USA. Similar powerful storms will pummel Europe, sending millions streaming south in panic. Then meteoroligists will issue their most severe warning yet: a storm that appears to be larger and more terrible than modern man has seen before. It will form a virtually nonstop hurricane of snow and ice that will begin to bury the Northern Hemisphere under an inpenetrable sheet of frost. As weeks go by, the skies will remain turbulent and dark, and mankind will be thrust into its greatest peril - the global superstorm.
