Maybe 3 and a quarter stars or 3 & a half stars. Very good in places but kind of dry in others.

He was there during the approach of Hurricane Floyd and chronicled some of the decisions that the forecasters had to make, and the dilemmas they faced. He also made a couple of flights on one of their planes into the eye.He also described the damage that Hurricane Mitch did to Honduras.
