Special planes called "Hurricane Hunters" fly into hurricanes to gather valuable information. The people on the airplanes belong to the Air Force Reserve. In the eye of the hurricane, they can measure wind speed, air pressure and the structure of the storm.
Bio: Weather enthusiast Katie Sullivan is the artist behind this collection of cartoon and explanations.

Hoping to become a tropical meteorologist and novelist, Katie's interests include writing, drawing, postcard collecting, computers, and, of course, weather.
