I always find videos of storm chasers fascinating. The things that will make them turn around and go in the opposite direction to everyone fleeing harm’s way and actually seek out imminent danger is something that I find simultaneously admirable and baffling. But it’s an incredibly dangerous job, and it’s not always possible to put actual humans in the path of a category 4 or 5 hurricane. So, enter the drones.
This Saildrone actually survived inside a category 4 hurricane, and the footage it captured is pretty amazing. It’s apparently the world’s first video from inside such a severe storm at sea. Warning: may cause nausea.
