Drone captures unique footage from the eye of category 4 Hurricane Sam

RT, 05 Oct 2021
The video, captured by the Saildrone Explorer SD 1045’s onboard camera, is said to be the first of its kind, as it takes the viewer into the center of a hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean.

The 23-foot crewless vessel managed to pierce the eyewall of Hurricane Sam, which peaked as a Category 4 storm, as waves stood at some 50 feet and winds topped 120mph.

Saildrone founder and CEO Richard Jenkins said, ‘We are proud to have engineered a vehicle capable of operating in the most extreme weather conditions on Earth.’
