Video of major Hurricane Irma's destructive landfall at Marco Island in southwestern Florida (Collier County) and south of Naples during the mid afternoon of September 10. This was my second major hurricane interception (this was a strong category 3 to low-end 4 at final landfall in Florida, after passing through the FL Keys) in just two weeks. The video shows the powerful eyewall, calm eye, and backside of the storm from a parking garage at a beachfront resort on the southern tip of the island. The video also shows Naples with storm surge and pre-storm footage as well. Chaser Derek Sibley joined me on this chase as well.
The video requires at least a DSL connection and the latest FLASH Media Plugin for best results. This video is hosted to and linked to the YOUTUBE site (you can visit them at www.youtube.com). Click on the "play" icon in the video above if it does not start automatically.
