U.S. network The Weather Channel will on Sunday (November 4) air Sandy: The Anatomy of a Superstorm, an hour-long special from Peacock Productions looking at the hurricane that has ravaged the Eastern Seaboard.

The special promises to tell “an all-encompassing story of the massive impact Hurricane Sandy had upon tens of millions across multiple states, including its nighttime landfall and the revelation of mass destruction upon sunrise,” according to the network.

It will examine the science of how this hurricane began in the Caribbean and developed into a devastating super-storm, and explore the possibility of more super-storms in future. Contributors include Weather Channel meteorologists such as Jim Cantore, Stephanie Abrams, Bryan Norcross and Stu Ostro, as well as scientist Bill Nye.

Sandy: The Anatomy of a Superstorm premieres at 8 p.m. EST.
