Storm chaser: ‘Surprising how many semis tried to push their luck’ during Hurricane Zeta


A deadly hurricane made landfall on the Gulf Coast last night and left trucks overturned.

Hurricane Zeta made landfall in Louisiana on Wednesday night as a Category 2 storm before traveling northeast, leaving at least two people dead and more than two million without electricity in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia.

The hurricane took a major toll as it travelled through Mississippi, toppling multiple trucks on I-10.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol reported that one truck was blown on eastbound I-10 at mile marker 66 over the Pascagoula River bridge.

Local news outlet WLOX reports that the truck driver was not injured during the blowover.

Storm chaser Aaron Jayjack also shared video of overturned trucks on Mississippi I-10 and noted that it was “surprising how many semis tried to push their luck with this overachieving and fierce storm.”

As of Thursday morning, Hurricane Zeta is raging through northeastern Georgia and is traveling north east at speeds of nearly 40 m.p.h.
