Drones — quadcopters — have certainly earned their stripes as tools of news gathering and storytelling.
The latest example comes from Houston, where Bryan Rumbaugh has posted some pretty amazing footage he took today of the flooding there.
Adam Blank’s quadcopter assessed the Chimney Rock neighborhood.
At least five people have been killed and a dozen are missing, according to the New York Times.
About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
