    Marines, sailors and civilians aboard Cherry Point tour a WP-3D Orion the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration uses for hurricane hunting during NOAA’s East Coast hurricane awareness tour May 4. Aircraft like this one are vital for forecasters to make accurate predictions concerning the path of a storm. In 2005, the hurricane hunters ensured the successful forecasting of Hurricane Katrina.
