Storm chaser Sean Casey and researchers from VORTEX 2 teach/preach the origins of one of the more dramatic of all weather-related natural disasters, the tornado, in a new movie adventure showing at Hartford's Connecticut Science Center (in 3-D, no less). (Bonus: you and the kids don't have to sit through all that Bill Paxton/Helen Hunt mushy love-interest stuff.)
Tornado Alley at the Connecticut Science Center, 250 Columbus Blvd., Hartford. (860) 948-1613, ctsciencecenter.org.
