I thought he was talking about the storm...If the storm was something special wouldnt he be saying "its right inside the ship"
He says "outside," not "inside."
But it's too hard to tell for now. It could still be the storm however, considering he's not just saying its outside the ship (which is obvious), but that it's RIGHT outside the ship. Like, very, very close, which is what we've seen in the material so far.
