Hurricane Hunters fly into Hurricane Laura

The Hurricane Hunters flew into Hurricane Laura to get an up close look at the storm.

The crew is based out of Biloxi, but relocated to South Carolina because of storms Laura and Marco.

Hurricane Hunters use WC-130J ‘Hercules’ Aircraft equipped with meteorological instruments.

The crews fly into tropical and winter storms to collect information about the movement, intensity, and size.

Hurricane Laura is moving up the Gulf Coast and is expected to strengthen before coming ashore late Wednesday or early Thursday.
