Interview: NOAA Hurricane Hunter tracks Sandy

Kris Van Cleave flew out of MacDill Air Force base in Tampa for this weekend's hurricane hunting mission.

The NOAA Hurricane Hunter Kermit got an up close and personal view of Hurricane Sandy this weekend. The aircraft flew right into the center of the mammoth storm as it headed up the east coast towards Washington, D.C.

Commander Mark Nelson describes how the Hurricane Hunter tracks storms in ways that even satellites, radars and land observations can’t.
