Federal scientists hope to get the first inside look at hurricanes, thanks to new drones. This hurricane season the National Hurricane Center in Miami will send small-unmanned aircraft into the eyes of the storms. Joe Cione is a hurricane researcher at the center, which is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. He joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive to discuss what scientists hope to accomplish.
