Storm chasers Juston Drake and Simon Brewer are out in some of the most extreme winds of Hurricane Irma. Drake says it is “by far the strongest winds” they’ve experienced — more powerful than what they experienced during Hurricane Harvey.
We’re not here to judge, but isn’t there something just a little unusual about stormchasers’ pathological need to immerse themselves in Mother Nature’s most severe wrath.
In any event…we’ll take their word for it!

Hurricane Irma is currently tearing north along Florida’s west coast, and is projected to impact Tampa in the next few hours. Be safe everybody!
