Hey. Because people will pay good money for any "hold my beer" opportunity.

An old kite design (no longer made), but pretty indestructible & also good controllability. [neutrinos_shadow, Nov 13 2022]

       Not that I've experienced a hurricane first-hand, but I would think that there would be far too much turbulence for the kite to fly in even an approximation of "stable". (I do have a lot of experience with kite flying.)
But it is definitely worth doing (un-manned) initial experiments, although a box kite is probably not the best choice. Something super-simple like an old C-Quad (see linky).

       This sounds like a job for Buster the test dummy.
