Hurricane Video for National Geographic Television

Update (Sunday, August 28, 2011):  Submissions of video footage for this project are no longer being accepted.

 

 

The National Geographic Channel is looking for footage documenting your Hurricane Irene survival stories. Our television team is working diligently over the next several days to create a documentary covering this historic storm, and we want your experience to be a part of it.

While we hope to get real, raw footage of what you experience, we do not condone nor do we want anyone to put themselves in harm’s way to capture video specifically for this use. However, we’d like to see any footage you capture documenting your experience with this storm.

Hurricane Irene Nears Landfall – Irene, the first hurricane of the 2011 Atlantic season, was poised on August 26 to be the first to make landfall in the United States since 2008. More than 50 million people were estimated to lie within the path of the storm as it headed toward the major U.S. population centers of Norfolk, Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston.

The coast of North Carolina and Virginia braced for a possible Category 3 storm, the strongest since 1996. Irene also appeared likely to become the first hurricane-force storm to make landfall in New England since 1991.
