But the more beautiful it looks, the more potentially destructive it's going to be. From the rubble, Pedro was only able to find one body, that of his younger son, Javier. On a quiet hill above the city, survivors pay their last respects. (CRIES OUT IN DIALECT) Mitch was the most lethal storm in modern history. Over , people killed, , missing and over , injured. This death toll ranks with the deadliest hurricanes of all time. This was certainly a very catastrophic event and one we hope will not be repeated. An entire country had very nearly been wiped out by one of the most powerful hurricanes the world has ever seen. When it was over, billions of gallons of water drained away into the Gulf of Mexico. Having brought destruction to Central America, this same water is about to become a key source of the weather in Britain and Europe. This coconut could be rolling onto a beach in Cornwall. To understand, we have to join the most famous part of the Thermohaline Conveyor. Drawn out of the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico by the Thermohaline Conveyor, the Gulf Stream runs practically the entire length of the North American coastline before reaching out east across the Atlantic towards the UK. It's degrees Celsius warmer than the sea around it, so it heats the air above it. All that moist warm air is then picked up and carried with the westerly winds to Europe. Incredibly, this massive river of warm water gives Britain and Ireland the wet and mild climate we all enjoy so much! We've known for centuries that the Gulf Stream exists, because every day the evidence is washed up on beaches like this. Nick and Jane Darke are professional beachcombers and regular visitors to Cornwall. After each storm, you'll find them searching along the high tide mark. Hello. Hi. These are seeds we've found. Where's this from? From central South America. From one of the rainforests, then down the Amazon into the sea. The Gulf Stream even brought them a little piece of Honduras. Six months after Mitch, an enormous number of seeds washed in, particularly on this beach between different species all from central South America on the Gulf Stream. Everybody's at it. We get lots of tags from Newfoundland, Canada. This is from Newfoundland and took months to cross. You tracked this tag? Yes, it gives the year, ', Lobster, Newfoundland and the serial number. From the serial number we can trace the fisherman. Some tags have telephone numbers so I phone them up and tell them that their gear has come from their side of the Atlantic into ours. They are all always, absolutely amazed. What the rest of us want to know is what weather the Gulf Stream will bring? It's very cold all day Sunday. It will be pretty wet across southern areas... ... but northern parts will be dry, bright, with spells of sun. For the Met Office based at the BBC, forecasting the weather and of course the rain is not easy. The Gulf Stream is not the only influence at work. We get reports from some ships and buoys. We've placed weather buoys out in the Atlantic. Helen Willetts, an experienced forecaster, explains the other forces that make our weather so wet.
