A superstorm is coming with the destructive force of fifty times that of the atom bomb. Nature strikes out with unfathomable fury as the unimaginable becomes a terrifying reality in 'Day of Destruction'. Three twisters descend upon Las Vegas leaving a neon wasteland in their wake. Hurricanes tear through the Gulf Coast without warning. Record-high temperatures scorch the northeast. One-hundred-mile-an-hour winds tear across the south. Lightning storms ignite the sky.

With the worst power breakdown on record looming, an overload could cripple the nation and leave the entire population in the dark, without communication and vulnerable to unthinkable dangers. A superstorm is coming with the destructive force of fifty times that of the atom bomb. Now, as black clouds blanket the country, and as an overload chain reaction renders it helpless, it's man against nature, and man against man.
