Hurricane Hunters Fly Over Eye of Hurricane Isaias

The eye of Hurricane Isaias was observed from above on the morning of July 31 by crew aboard a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) aircraft.

An update from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued at 2pm ET Friday said the Hurricane Hunters, as the aircraft crews are known, said Isaias was “getting better organized” and was bringing tropical storm conditions and heavy rains into the central Bahamas.

A Hurricane Warning remained in effect for much of the Bahamas, the NHC said, while a Hurricane Watch was in effect for a section of Florida’s east coast including the cities of Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie, and Delray Beach. Credit: NOAA Hurricane Hunters via Storyful
