Currents Present Search Challenges for MH370

With a report of potential debris spotted a thousand miles away from the current MH370 underwater search area, questions arise about what's next in the hunt for the for missing Malaysia Flight 370.

Tropical cyclones could have had an impact on the movement of debris from a crash site, including strong Tropical Cyclone Gillian and the recent remnants of Tropical Cyclone Jack, reports CNN's Chad Myers.

On top of these systems, ocean currents and eddies can move debris erratically and scatter for long distances.

Watch Myers and Michaela Pereira explore what this new information means to what we already know so far about the search above.
