In the latter part of August, regional reporters were able stand in the University of Maryland's Glenn L. Martin Wind Tunnel to report a simulation of being caught in the eye of a storm.

The Glenn L. Martin Wind Tunnel, in the University of Maryland's A. James Clark School of Engineering, is one of the busiest wind tunnels in the country and is booked months in advance for research activity.

Hurricanes are rated on a 1-5 scale based on the hurricane's intensity. The scale is used to give an estimate of the potential property damage and flooding expected along the coast from a hurricane landfall. Wind speed is the determining factor in the scale, as storm surge values are highly dependent on the slope of the continental shelf in the landfall region.
