I mostly find the PR angle on this interesting.

I was also enlightened to read up a little on hurricane height.

There were some complaints on Twitter about this...

Or from folks on the plane?

Although, we should probably ass-ume that the hurricane sent them falling from the sky, in pieces, to did died…
