Hurricane Joaquin: Flying into the Eye of the Storm
Hurricane Joaquin continues to move along the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean and out of range to make landfall in the U.S.
At it's strongest, Joaquin was a category four hurricane. That's a severe storm with strong winds up to 155 miles per hour! The highest category is five. So have you ever wondered about the teams that study hurricanes? Derek Van Dam takes us to the skies to watch as the U.S. Air Force collects data from the eye of the storm.
