The prudent thing to do when a hurricane’s a-comin’ is to run far and fast in the opposite direction. But for reporters, storm chasers and idiots who decide to do just the opposite, the Weather Channel’s Jim Cantore breaks down what you need to exist in a hurricane.
The long and short of it? Shoes. Keeping your feet dry is apparently priority number one (aside from not being sucked hundreds of metres into the air to a horrible death). And you need a wetsuit, since you can get hypothermia in 25C weather if you’re constantly soaked and being beaten down by angry winds. Or you could just run away like a normal person. [Mediabistro]
