If you missed “Hurricane 360: Horror on the Jersey Shore” on The Weather Channel last night, you have another chance to watch or set the DVR for 10 p.m today.
The new series documents “moments of fear and courage in the face of nature’s wrath,” taking viewers “on an immersive minute-by-minute journey into the eye of the storm,” according to a release from the network.
It debuted with stories of heroism and survival in Ocean County during Superstorm Sandy last night.
The program weaves in actual storm footage with dramatizations, telling the stories of Seaside Heights Police Chief Thomas Boyd, residents of Toms River and Pelican Island who rescued dozens of trapped neighbors, a family from Normandy Beach, and a man from the Green Island section of Toms River who was swept into the Barnegat Bay.
After treading water for five hours, Mike Iann made it back to land and broke into a house.
He then found dry clothes and left a note — fearing that he was going to die — asking the homeowners to tell his father that he loves him.
But Iann survived and was rescued by jet skier Frank Vincendese the next morning.
