The strongest hurricane ever recorded over the Atlantic Ocean, Hurricane Irma, has made its first landfall on the island of Barbuda. It is heading to the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico with category 5 winds and rains.

 

With winds over 175 mph, some might wonder what it would be like to fly a plane through the storm? Well, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has been flying its planes right through the storm and has provided us with a first-hand account that will surely make your heart stop.

You thought your last trip’s in-flight turbulence was bad? Ha!

Hurricane Irma comes shortly after the devastating Hurricane Harvey that left thousands in Texas without shelter, food, or water.
