Surveying the devastation of Hurricane Dorian from the sky

A seaplane company based in Florida is organizing a mission to bring much-needed relief to parts of the Bahamas that were pummeled by Hurricane Dorian. As soon as weather conditions are deemed safe enough, Tropic Ocean Airways will deploy its fleet from Fort Lauderdale International Airport to assess the damage from a bird's eye view. The airline has teamed up with the Bahamian government and a group of former Navy SEALS called "Blue Tide Marine" to deliver vital medical support to the islands along with food and water. Former U.S. Navy fighter pilot and C.E.O. of Tropic Ocean Airways Rob Ceravolo joined CBSN to discuss the relief efforts.
