Weather Channel Presents ‘Hurricane Hunters’

Documentary series “Hurricane Hunters” premieres tonight on The Weather Channel. It follows members of the Air Force Reserve Squadron in Biloxi, Miss., as they fly planes into eyes of hurricanes to gather key meteorological data necessary to determine the storm’s path and strength. For the series, the crew flew into every major hurricane and tropical storm of the 2011 season, including Hurricane Irene.

The Weather Channel is available to virtually all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.
