Hurricane Season And The Pandemic
It’s the first week of hurricane season. Already we’ve had a couple storms spin up in the Atlantic, and Tropical Storm Cristobal is expected to head for the US through the gulf later this week. What are the challenges of preparing for hurricane season with the country still in the grip of the coronavirus pandemic?
90.7 environmental reporter Amy Green and InsideClimate News reporter James Bruggers join Intersection to talk about their collaborative reporting for InsideClimate News and NPR on the challenge of potentially coping with two disasters at once.
