Description
Escape From New YorkNew York City has seen its share of disasters. Terrorist attacks. Blackouts. Hurricanes. Floods. But nothing has prepared the Big Apple for the biggest earthquake to ever hit the United States. 9.0 on the Richter scale. Manhattan and the surrounding boroughs are a smoldering disaster, plunging New York into terrifying chaos. Skyscrapers and bridges have collapsed, killing hundreds of thousands. For a handful of survivors, the nightmare is just beginning. . .Clawing north, navigating the ruined city amidst violent aftershocks, FBI agent Hector Mendoza hopes to reunite with his wife. Assistant U.S. Attorney Nick Dykstra is hellbent on finding his daughter way uptown at Columbia University--before a 9/11 conspirator who escaped during the quake finds her first. But the Indian Point nuclear power plant, 40 miles north, is severely damaged. A deadly cloud of radiation is drifting toward the city. The only chance for survival is going down into the subways--and deeper still. . .

New York City has seen its share of disasters. Terrorist attacks. Blackouts. Hurricanes. Floods. But nothing has prepared the Big Apple for the biggest earthquake to ever hit the United States. 9.0 on the Richter scale.

For a handful of survivors, the nightmare is just beginning. . .

Clawing north, navigating the ruined city amidst violent aftershocks, FBI agent Hector Mendoza hopes to reunite with his wife. Assistant U.S. Attorney Nick Dykstra is hellbent on finding his daughter way uptown at Columbia University--before a 9/11 conspirator who escaped during the quake finds her first.
