"Hazel" was the name of a Tau'ri hurricane that affected Canada. In 2004, the planet Lantea was facing a severe storm that hits the planet every twenty to thirty years. When they discuss methods to save Atlantis from the flood, Doctors Rodney McKay and Radek Zelenka discuss the rarity of hurricanes in their home countries, Canada and the Czech Republic, respectively. McKay mentions that Canada was once hit was a hurricane named "Hazel". (SGA: "The Storm")
Behind the scenesEdit
- There was indeed a hurricane named Hazel which affected Canada. McKay noted that it took place forty years ago before the events of "The Storm". However, that is incorrect. The hurricane took place in 1954, meaning it took place fifty years before the events of the episode, not forty. It is possible, though, that McKay was either being vague with the dating, or he forgot when it happened.
