This is just a small sample of footage I captured while tracking major Hurricane Matthew along the Florida coast, mostly on October 6, 2016. I was in the storms's western eye wall as it passed over Daytona Beach, Florida. Storm surge moved inland as the Halifax River flowed backward and flooded the city. The highest wind gust I experienced was about 90 mph. Shooting format was DCI 4K, 4:2:2 10-bit. Rain gear by camRade. No LUTs were used, just a bit of contrast and color balance (hurricanes tend to be bluish, or about 7000K). This material can be licensed through StormStock at
