Look. - Rain in the desert?

At home, it rains quite enough. - I hope the camera will take.

Nice. Run the mud. - Let's go home. It looks bad.

A little water. What's the harm? - Let's go now.

Stop by, David. Be nice.

Oh, my God. Is it right?

It comes towards us. - Drive!

Let's get out.

David, please. - Let's get out.





Send all.

I no longer want to come here. - We did not come here at all.

It sends us back and says that is the wrong direction.

I will send GPS information and images. They are forced to believe in us.

I'll send it now.

Ready. - Now let's get out.

Take us home.

There is poor visibility. I fly low.

What's going on?


Hunley Marine Institute


Thank you.

Now, do not play with.

When stressed it fits you perfectly.

Come on. - Changes are almost ready.

Do not have 15 minutes to his partner? Tragic.

15 minutes, no more. - Yes, I lieutenant.

Tule. - Reminds me menemme?

Soon you will see. It is a surprise.

Do I have yet to climb? - Yes. Come on, old man.

Some couples say this treffeiksi.

It's been a long time, when we ate together. We are always in a hurry.

You always work on the turbine working and I'm in the lab.

It is important to be together, especially now that ...

John. - Look.


It's too early. It was supposed to happen in a week.

It may not be our storm. - Nothing else is not moving as quickly.

We need to go to the conference room.

As you know, this is the first part of the destruction.

This is Central Africa. The desert has become a lake.

The storm began in the North of Egypt, and it is already here up.

Now it rains normally, but a storm in the middle of a bad situation.

Rain of 50 mm per hour.

The storm force here was supposed to last two weeks.

It becomes more powerful, immensely. - It is true, Dr. Nichols.

It becomes stronger 320 km in every direction, and is not known to subside.

According to calculations, it covers the entire planet in five weeks.

Corporal, I need a storm in the last coordinates.

They are given here.

Please, sir.

Will we choose to work in the sheet 35 working days?

We would like to thank the fleet that we were not even advance warning.

How far you've come?

The outer shell, interior and propellers are still outstanding.

And turbines. - Design to prepare for aamulla.

How far you have come with the collection of DNA?

They are not here. I have a seed stocks.

DNA samples are in Denver, as the Cooling system does not yet exist.

It is the most important thing of all, that ye shall receive them here.

The second sheet of builders expect tracings.

They do not even have a prototype. - Others do not have time to be completed on time.

Shall amend the Plan. Since time is limited, -

our arkkimme is probably the only one that will be completed in a timely manner.

Is not 90 per cent of their passengers sheets clear any of this?

Passengers are brought together and the seats will be.

Of these, 300 will be flown here.

Families have been promised places. After all, they still have places?

My parents and your mother.

The situation has changed. Your family will be flown here.

But not all of them survive.

What people have said? - That it is now a powerful storm season.

Admiral. - Tell me, Lieutenant.

Center of the storm is less than 640 km from the east coast.

It does not match calculations.

It covers the earth in less than three weeks. Schedule is becoming more difficult.

Get back to work.

I know that the turbine plan is impossible, but I have to try.

Personally, I have my orders. - After all, you have a conscience, sir?

I'll send it, but within 24 hours the earth is covered by water.

I've done my part. Now it's your turn.



Hey. Let us over the bridge. - The bridge is closed during the storm.

The house needs to be protected. - Here it is dangerous.

Everywhere is dangerous. The water rises all the time.

The island is covered item under the water. - What are you doing?

Saving our lives.

No! This is sick. - Why do all of the following us?



Check that the DNA samples are undamaged.

Tri Nichols.

Locomotive Man called. The train does not run due to the earthquake.

Where is it? - 60 km south-east of here.

Rebecca. - The samples are cold store.

They melt in a few hours and go bad.

See the copter and the staff are ready and call the Masters.

What do you do? - Someone has to retrieve the samples.

The Masters is one of the best soldiers. He knows how to handle the task.

And part.

The train has more than 100,000 samples, and do not fit into the chopper.

All is not mandatory, but the applicant will need to know what are.

He did not know what to yperhos- samples are needed -

in order to create a new permanent ecosystem.

I can not afford to lose you.

Get samples and come back. Do you understand?


Masters, this is Dr. Tessa Nichols.

The train has DNA samples. The train does not run due to the earthquake.

Dr. Nichols goes to the train. Help him to take the samples.

They and the woman must be safely back.

Get back as soon as possible.

The forward speed of the storm in mind, 30 minutes can be a chaos.

Good luck.


I look forward to the helicopter's house.

What are you doing here?

Train with DNA samples does not pass. I have to fly there.
