Chase Account: I Flew to Cancun Mexico on July 16th to get into position for Hurricane Emily. I spent the entire day of July 17th scoping out locations in the Cancun area as well as Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. I found a great safe location in Playa Del Carmen and decided to choose this as my location to be for Emily. The entire hurricane made landfall at night and got really intense and ferocious starting around 11:30pm lasting until 3:00am. This hurricane had more cloud to cloud lightning in it than any other I've seen. When the eyewall crossed my location the sky was lighting up constantly. I even heard thunder on a few occasions. I didn't film too much during the night as there wasn't much to see in the pitch dark. At daybreak I surveyed the damage from Playa Del Carmen to Tulum and the damage was extensive.
Special Thanks to Jim Reed for keeping me updated on Emily's progress during landfall.
