Source – Hurricane Florence is ramping up to become one of the biggest natural disasters of the decade. With winds exceeding 130 miles per hour, its trajectory aimed directly at Virginia is expected to cause biblical flooding, toxic sludge, and lagoons of pig manure.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) flew its WP-3D Hurricane Hunter through Florence earlier today to gather reconnaissance. Its worst fears were realized, and they have the video footage to prove it.
