And now for a sampling of nature’s finest hurricane videos. Batten down the hatches, because it’s only in the bedroom that it’s fun getting banged like a screen door in a hurricane!
#1: “Hurricane Wilma Hits Southern Florida”
In this awesome science video, watch palm trees head-banging in the wind like a gathering of gangly punk rock kids as hurricane Wilma flattens South Florida in 2005.
#2: “Hurricane Sandy: Timelapse of the Storm from the New York Times Building”
Appreciate a far better vantage point than most New Yorkers had of the storm that caused the Big Apple a serious headache in 2012! Watch Hurricane Sandy roll in and over NYC from the safety of the Times Building. It’s terrifyingly beautiful from this ivory tower.
#3: “Hurricane Katrina Satellite Timelapse”
Katrina’s fender bender with the southern states (2005): This is a must-see for a lesson in hurricane formation, from hazy blip over the Bahamas to a monstrous storm system that swarms and spins like your head after a night of tequila swilling!
