Listen to this 'Talk of the Nation' topic
Hurricane season has been relentless this year — it's been one storm after another, with very little respite in between. First up was Hurricane Gustav, which hit west of New Orleans a week ago today. We'll check in with a news editor in Houma, Louisiana, who's still living in the newsroom. Then, this weekend, we heard from Hurricane Hanna, which drenched much of the East Coast. And now there's Ike — the most powerful storm of the year to date. We'll talk to reporters in Cuba and Haiti, both hit hard, and we'll hear from a resident of Grand Turk Island, which was pummeled over the weekend. Lastly, we'll check in with a meteorologist from NOAA's National Weather Service who will tell us if Hurricane Ike is expected to gather new strength, and where it is likely to hit next.
If you have family in the Caribbean, if you've evacuated ahead of the storm, or if you're still cleaning up from Hanna or Gustav, tell us your story.
