Hurricane Hunters Fly Through Hurricane Irma





NOAA’s Hurricane Hunters barely got a break after tracking Hurricane Harvey. Now they’re busy punching their way through Hurricane Irma.

The Florida-based teams fly missions into tropical storms and hurricanes, dropping sensors and taking radar readings as they fly. The result is a three-dimensional picture of the storm and its surrounding environment, which is invaluable to forecasters as they try to figure out both the track and intensity of a storm.

Hurricane Irma is still several days out – too far to say with any certainty how it will impact the U.S. – but after the destruction left behind by Hurricane Harvey, the new storm is making a lot of people nervous. Data gathered by these flights should help millions of residents know if and when they need to prepare.
