Well, This is Something

As Michael barges ashore as a Category 4 (almost 5) hurricane with winds of 155 MPH, I saw something I'd never heard of with hurricanes.

The circulation of a hurricane can be so powerful that birds wind up trapped in the eye of the storm.

Those non-blue objects in the eye? Lots and lots of birds. They just fly along in the eye of the storm until it weakens or they can find shelter.
