What Really Happened

National Geographic Channel (Astro Ch 553) announced today the premiere of an in-depth documentary detailing Hurricane Sandy and its mammoth and merciless wake, which caused more than 110 fatalities in the U.S., and paralysed life for millions of people in more than a half-dozen states.

Superstorm New York: What Really Happened, a one-hour special, premieres Sunday, 25 November 2012 at 11.00pm, and will air globally this month in 171 countries.
