A storm system is brewing over the tropical ocean and a strange yellow object is caught in the whirlwind. It's not a balloon or a plane, it's the magic school bus. Instead of visiting a weather station, Ms Frizzle's class experiences a hurricane firsthand. Wind, rain, thunder and lightning take on new meaning when you're inside a hurricane.
