Celebrate Natural Disasters At The Museum of Natural History

November 14, 2014 | Bucky Turco

A new exhibit is opening in New York City that focuses on nature’s wrath, reports Live Science. The high tech demonstration not only explains the science behind natural phenomena, but also allows attendees to play God:

The interactive exhibit lets visitors build their own virtual volcano, create and measure tiny earthquakes, and see what the eye of a tornado looks like.

But the destructive forces don’t stop there. New Yorkers can relive the horrors of Hurricane Sandy virtually via “an interactive map…which shows the coastal areas that were most vulnerable to storm surges.” Titled “Nature’s Fury: The Science Behind Natural Disasters,” the exhibit opens November 15 and runs until August 9.
