It Will Happen Again

Oh Jeebus:

...The cineplexes showing our Christmas war movies are already running a trailer for "The Day After Tomorrow," an epic from the creators of "Independence Day" in which an apocalyptic conflagration lays waste to major American cities. On Memorial Day, the legend on screen informs us, "It Will Happen Again" and asks, "Where Will You Be?"

What exactly is that ambiguous "It"? The vivid images in the trailer are of a devastated Los Angeles, a tempest-tossed New York.
