An airplane video that takes you on a virtual journey through Hurricane Laura.
Nick Underwood of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shared time-lapse footage of their second pass of five through the Category 4 storm. After wending its way down the east coast of America, the hurricane made landfall in Louisiana, where it was downgraded to a Category 2.
Structural damage and uprooted trees are still to be expected as Laura wreaks havoc on the Texas border, and the authorities have made warnings of ‘unsurvivable’ flooding.
A pass in and out of a hurricane is called a ‘penetration’ or a ‘penny’. Underwood’s latest trips through Laura take his career total to 61 pennies.
