aye of the storm
Hurricane Ivan (2004) struck the island of Grenada as a Category 3 hurricane. The eye of the storm passed directly over the island. Cory R. Lunn and his parents rode out the storm on board Te Natura, a 43 foot cruising sailboat. The power of the storm can be seen on footage shot from inside the boat. The subsequent shipwreck and devastation of the island is also shown in this short film. The full story including abandoning ship in the dinghy during the storm, can be found in the recently published book aptly named Eye Of The Storm by Cory R. Lunn.
