Hurricanes are nature's largest and most powerful storms. With sustained winds from 80mph to over 150mph and damage paths that can span 100 miles across, these tropical cyclones are not to be taken lightly. The following collection of photos and video were taken during Storm Highway expeditions into the center of landfalling hurricanes on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States.
