On June 28th, 2016, Ranie Pearce was attempting to swim the Kaiwi Channel from Molokai to Oahu, Hawaii, when a tiger shark swam up on her and would not leave! An aerial drone captured it all on video!
If any of Hawaii’s drone hobbyists are interested in volunteering to provide pre-landfall reconnaissance and post-landfall damage assessments for Hawaii State Civil Defense please contact my office at the number below.
The videos that @PRIMEFOOTAGE produced provided valuable preliminary damage assessment information about Iselle and we would like to leverage Hawaii’s civilian drone resources to assist in the assessment of Tropical Storm Ana.
If you are interested in volunteering please contact my office at State Civil Defense via email at dhafner@scd.Hawaii.gov or by phone at (808) 733-4300 x583.
Here’s a recent video I shot while on Oahu
