Hurricane hunters see 'stadium effect' inside Irma's eye


The eye of dangerous Hurricane Irma looks something like a sports stadium.

The so-called "Hurricane Hunters" from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) flew through the storm and captured the "stadium effect" of the strong Category 5 storm. This makes the eye look like a sports arena dome with the smaller opening looking into the "stadium" below.
