TYPE OF VIOLENT WEATHER: A prolonged rainstorm
ITS SIGNIFICANCE IN THE MOVIE: A once-in-a-century rainstorm over the Midwest has caused flooding all over the region. Including the small Indiana town where armored truck driver Tom (Christian Slater)—and his $3 million haul—attracts the attention of a gang led by Jim (Morgan Freeman).
RANDOM (BUT SLIGHTLY RELEVANT) FACTOID: The weight of water makes flooding extremely dangerous—just two feet of water has enough force to carry away a car.
