A U.S. naval aircraft on a routine weather patrol in the Caribbean encounters Hurricane Mabel. There is nothing abnormal about Mabel except her ferocity. She should pass harmlessly among the islands, but David Wyatt, civilian weather expert, has developed a sixth sense about hurricanes. He is convinced that Mabel will change course to strike the island of San Fernandez and its capital, St. Pierre.
Scientific evidence is against him; the Commander of the U.S. Base refuses to evacuate; and Wyatt's lone voice is finally overwhelmed when a rebellion against the tyrannical dictator who rules San Fernandez sweeps down on threatened St. Pierre.
To save everything he cares for, Wyatt is forced to pit himself against seemingly insuperable odds, aided only by a small and diverse group of English and American civilians - and Hurricane Mabel herself.
