Mythbusters "Hurricane Windows," premieres Wednesday, November 4 at 9PM ET/PT.
The wind is blowing with this raucous episode. When the air turns cold, rain falls from the sky, and the wind blows at 70 mph, is your first thought to close the windows?
According to NASA, you should actually leave windows open during a hurricane or strong storm to prevent serious damage to your home.
Jamie and Adam head to The University of Florida to test out this theory with the world’s largest portable hurricane simulator. Meanwhile, Kari, Grant and Tory tackle two frigid fables involving liquid nitrogen.
Using horror movies as inspiration, the trio recreates the famous scene where the villain dunks the victim’s head in liquid nitrogen for five seconds and then shatters it on the counter!
Then, they investigate a very unusual legend that if true, could potentially ruin your Christmas.
